Photographs of CiC at Wolfson Lunchtime Seminars

Civilizations in Contact is grateful to the organisers for allowing us to contribute talks to the Wolfson Lunchtime Seminar Series. These talks are given either by CiC researchers themselves, or by other scholars, on topics related to CiC research interests. The lunchtime seminars are held from 1 pm to 2 pm on Wednesdays during full term at Wolfson College, Cambridge. They provide opportunities for researchers in a wide variety of areas within different academic disciplines to present their research in an informal setting.
