HRC Seminar Series

HRC Visiting Fellows, whilst at the Centre, participate in the Centre’s programs and meet regularly with other fellows to make a public presentation of their research.

Members of the University and the general public are welcome to attend seminars for free. They are followed by informal discussion and light refreshments, and we encourage all students to attend and for tutors to advise their students of this opportunity.

Each seminar is held at 4.30pm in the Theatrette (unless otherwise indicated), on the 2nd floor (entry level) of the Sir Roland Wilson Building.
