CLCC Research Seminars - All Welcome

A regular activity in the calendar of the CLCC, the Research Seminar Programme invites staff and postgraduate students to give talks based on their current work within the Centre.

The seminars currently take place on alternate Thursdays from 14.45-15:30 and are held online via MS Teams.

Seminar Topics

Due to the diverse nature of the academic interests represented within the Centre – ranging from modern languages through history, philosophy and art to science communication and more –  our programme of seminars reflects a wide range of topics and is intended firstly to offer speakers a chance to share their work with others within the Centre and secondly to showcase the work of the Centre outside it.

Joining a Seminar

All are welcome. Registration is often open via eventbrite. To attend the next CLCC Research Seminar, please contact Sheila Ekudo.

Any staff member or postgraduate student interested in giving a seminar should contact Charmian Brinson or Sheila Ekudo

Seminar Recordings

Seminars will be recorded and a selection of past seminar recordings is also available to watch. All recordings be accessed via the CLCC Research Seminar Recordings webpage.
