Research Fora

Postgraduate Research Fora, hosted by the Society and the Postgraduate Committee, are events at which both postgraduates and SCR members give brief talks on their current research. Anyone from the wider Cuth's community is welcome to attend to hear their research and join in the discussion. Topics have included King Arthur, Molière, galaxy formation, Austrian novels, fellowship among knights and among hobbits, philosophy, and landslides. In the upcoming event ‘One Slide Says It All’, any member of Cuth’s can encapsulate their research in a single image or set of images.These informal sessions allow research students to practice presenting their projects to non-specialists, whilst students discover what SCR members work on and undergraduates gain a better understanding of what research involves.

Upcoming Research Fora

All are welcome and refreshments will be provided.
