Chaucer Club

Chaucer Club

The Chaucer Club is a weekly seminar series featuring key speakers in our field.

Unless specifically indicated otherwise, all seminars are held in term time only on Thursday afternoons in the Lecture Theatre at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, 15 Chaucer Rd, Cambridge, CB2 7EF, from 3.30pm.

All are welcome to attend and there is no need to pre-register, just come early enough to report to Reception and claim a visitor badge. Please note – all seats are allocated on first-come, first-served basis, and we have an H&S limit of 90 attendees which cannot be exceeded.

Note that there is no parking available on site. Please do not park illegally on the road outside – in particular do not park on the verges or blocking the footpaths. Cycle racks are available.

For further information, or to join the e-mail list for the Seminar Schedule and updates, please email Amy Cook.

All public talks are publicised on the University talks website, which also contains an archive of older lectures.
