Postgraduate seminars

During term time, the postgraduate community run an informal seminar series where they get together, share work in progress, and practise presenting papers in a friendly, inclusive environment. It gives postgraduate students the opportunity to talk about their work, find out what other postgraduates in the department are working on, and experience presenting current research and chairing papers.

This semester, the seminars are being organised by Carolyn La Rocco and Niels Arends. All seminars will be held at 1pm on Fridays, online in MS Teams, unless otherwise stated. If you would like to attend the seminars, please email a request for the meeting link to either Carolyn, , or Niels,
