HRC Work in Progress Seminar Series

Our longest-running seminar series, the annual WIPS (Work in Progress Seminar) series provides a regular opportunity for our whole community to gather to listen and provide feedback to our Visiting Fellows who all present the research they are working on during their stay.

HRC affiliates and visiting fellows are expected to attend on a regular basis. Members of the University and the general public are welcome to participate in these seminars, and we particularly encourage all undergraduate and higher degree research students to join us.

Seminars are followed by informal discussion.
Each seminar is held at 4.30pm on a Tuesday.
