These take place in London on weekday evenings, at 6 p.m. at New York University, 6 Bedford Square, London, WC1B 3RA, room 102. Refreshments, including wine, are served.

The seminars are free (except the guest lecture) and open to everyone. For further details, please contact the Seminar Secretaries, Jo Tinworth () and Charles Farris (). Historians interested in giving a seminar paper to the Society should contact the Seminar Secretaries as well.
