CHESS Weekly Research Meetings
CHESS organises weekly research meetings for its members and interested colleagues. Meetings take place each Thursday during term time at 10:15am in the Philosophy Department Seminar Room (unless otherwise stated).
At meetings, academics and postgraduate students keep track of and help with each other's research, forge new projects and read and discuss new work together. All we ask is that attendees read the paper (circulated in advance) and come prepared to help think problems through with the group.
All welcome - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to be added to the mailing list.
