Haydn Mason Lecture

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


The Mason lecture was established to mark the retirement of Haydn Mason, a former President of BSECS, from the Ashley Watkins Chair of French at the University of Bristol in 1994. Taking place every two years at the Annual Conference, its focus is on the European Enlightenment, with a preference for a French perspective to honour Mason’s work. The lecture is designed to promote the work of an early-career scholar, who already has a track record of distinction.
