Ancient Philosophy

Our main objective is to foster the interdisciplinary exchange between humanists working in Classics and in Philosophy

The Working Group in Ancient Philosophy has been in existence at UC Berkeley since 2001. Its main objective is to foster the interdisciplinary exchange between humanists working in Classics and in Philosophy. The group features talks by distinguished scholars from both fields, but it also provides a forum for graduate students from UC Berkeley to present their work in progress. In addition, it regularly meets to read and discuss Ancient philosophical texts in the original language.

Nineteenth-Century and Beyond British Cultural Studies

We provide a forum for faculty and graduate students to discuss new research on the literature and culture of the long nineteenth century

Founded in 1995, the Nineteenth-Century and Beyond British Cultural Studies Working Group provides a forum for faculty and graduate students to discuss new research on the literature and culture of the long nineteenth century. Pre-circulated papers investigate issues of aesthetics, politics, history, theory, and other current sites of academic focus. We make a concerted effort to invite speakers whose research appeals to scholars in more than one discipline. Our focus on discourse analysis and questions of representation has proven particularly well suited to interdisciplinary study.

Berkeley-Stanford British Studies Reading Group

We are a community of scholars doing work in the field of British studies

The Berkeley-Stanford British Studies Reading Group (B.S.R.G.) creates a community of scholars—both professors and graduate students—who are doing work in the field of British studies. The group discusses recent work in British history in light of developments in cultural studies, imperial and post-colonial history, gender studies, and comparative history. Our discussions are held two times per semester, alternately in Berkeley and Stanford.

Berkeley Latin American History - BLAH

We host twice-monthly working group sessions with presentations of article-length papers or chapter selections from larger projects near publication from advanced students and professors that contribute to discussions of important themes, questions, and theoretical concerns in Latin American history.
