Fellows' Seminars

Fellows' seminars take place on Monday lunchtimes in the seminar room at Cosin's Hall.

Places are limited and so any academic colleagues interested in attending a seminar should contact the Institute in advance to reserve a place or telephone 42589.

The aim of these seminars is to develop new thinking on the big issues that are of current concern/interest for the Fellows. Each Fellow is asked to present a core idea that informs their current work, or a problem that they are tackling, that could benefit from cross-disciplinary thinking. These seminars are informal and designed to encourage discussion. Details of each seminar will be published the week before the scheduled date.
