Research seminars and fora

Our weekly research seminars and fora involve a wide range of internationally esteemed invited lecturers, alongside our academic staff and postdoctoral colleagues and our large cohort of postgraduate students, as well as interested undergraduates, and colleagues from across the University and our partner institutions.

While some sessions take the form of traditional seminars on specialist topics, we also host structured discussions of key topics and issues within the discipline, including within our research clusters.

These usually result in lively debate and stimulate both research networking and the development of new collaborations and research relationships.
