MEMSA Seminars 2012-13
The MEMSA discussion group, or seminar series, convenes every two weeks to listen to a member deliver a paper relating to their current research after which there is an opportunity for questions and discussion. As a group, we strive to create a supportive and generous atmosphere where members can present material and gain feedback. The group meets on Mondays at 5:30pm in the World Heritage Site Visitors Centre off the Bailey (#7 Owengate). Each paper lasts between twenty and thirty minutes and is followed by questions. Refreshments are always provided and all are most welcome to attend, including staff members, postgraduates, and undergraduates. If you wish to present a paper, please send an email to the MEMSA at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to our Chairperson, David Burke.
