CIDRAL facilitates cross-disciplinary activities and exchanges within the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures (SALC) and beyond.

Since 2005, CIDRAL has been organising events for academics, postgraduates and members of the public around particular themes in order to facilitate intellectual debate across the disciplines on diverse topics chosen by colleagues in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures.

Our events include open lectures, film screenings, conversations between visiting speakers and colleagues at the University of Manchester, postgraduate masterclasses and other research dialogues of various kinds.
