The aim of the Research Seminar Series is to bring together academic staff, current foundation, undergraduate, postgraduate students and administrative colleagues of the University in an informal intellectual and social environment. The seminars are held on Wednesdays at 2:00 pm, and each addresses a particular theme.
The format of each seminar is intended to encourage a range of perspectives and engagement with the given core theme. Speakers from separate disciplines and academic contexts will describe how the concept or experience of that topic has influenced their own research and research-related agendas.
