Lectures and workshops

Café Historique

Café Historique is a public lecture series featuring faculty from the University of Victoria. Held from October through to April each year, the talks take place in a convivial café setting and encourage the audience to engage with new ideas about how the past has shaped our present and future. A Café Historique is an opportunity to eat, drink, converse, make new friends, and have an evening to remember.

If you have any questions or if you would like to receive updates about Café Historique, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the department via our general mailing address: clio@uvic.ca. (Did you know that Clio was the Greek goddess of History?)
