We have a lunchtime seminar series featuring our own researchers and invited speakers from academic, policy and third sector organisations. These seminars take place throughout the year and are open to students, staff and the general public.

We also organise and participate in various talks, workshops, debates, conferences and festivals to share our research and connect with people beyond academia.

Please sign up to our mailing list to be kept informed of upcoming events.

Lunchtime seminars

Our lunchtime seminars are held from 1-2pm, both in-person in the Clarice Pears building, and online via Zoom.
