The Lawrence Stone Lectures

The Davis Center and Princeton University Press have also partnered to bring important and innovative historical scholarship to a broad audience through the Lawrence Stone Lectures. Each year, the Davis Center brings a major historian to campus for a week of informal meetings and three thematically linked lectures. These lectures serve as the foundation for the Lawrence Stone Lectures volumes. Titles include:
