The Wiles Lectures, given at The Queen's University of Belfast, is a regular, occasional series of lectures on an historical theme, sponsored by the University and published (usually in extended and modified form) by Cambridge University Press. The lecture series was established in the 1950s with the encouragment of the historian Herbert Butterfield, whose 1954 inaugural lecture series was published as 'Man on his Past' (1955). Later lecture series have produced many notable Cambridge titles, such as Alfred Cobban's 'The Social Interpretation of the French Revolution' (1964), J. H. Elliott's 'The Old World and the New' (1970), E. J. Hobsbawm's 'Nations and Nationalism since 1780' (1990), and Adrian Hastings' 'The Construction of Nationhood' (1997).
