Brown bag series

The brown bag seminar series is a forum where staff members and visitors to the School can present their work in progress. The seminars serve as a venue for constructive discussion and a place to share ideas at the very frontier of research and at a preliminary stage of development.

Seminars take place in Castlecliffe, F2, on Wednesdays between 1pm and 2pm, unless stated otherwise.

Organiser: Irina Merkurieva
