Arts and Humanities Seminars

The Graduate Seminar Programme in the Arts and Humanities is open to all interested DPhil, master’s and other postgraduate students and is intended to provide an opportunity not only to discuss recent research findings and methodological approaches but to meet with other students and academic staff.

Invited speakers present a paper exploring a topic and methodologies relevant to a range of subject disciplines followed by a discussion.

The first seminar in the academic year will take place at 17:30 on 18th October in the No. 11 Conference room (please ask at reception for the access code).  We are delighted to welcome Dr Janet Dickenson as our first speaker, who will discuss 'Drowned books and their histories: making sense of a 17thC shipwreck and its remarkable cargo'.
