Rewley House Research seminars

placeholder

The aim of the series is to bring together academic staff, current postgraduate students and administrative colleagues of the University in an informal intellectual and social environment. The seminars are held on Friday, Week 4 of each term at 16.30, and each address a general theme.

The format of each seminar is intended to encourage a range of perspectives and engagement with the core theme. This year we have introduced a new format to allow for longer talks and more in-depth discussion.

Two speakers from separate disciplines and academic contexts will describe how the concept or experience of that topic has influenced their own research and research-related agendas. Speakers each have 20-30 minutes to deliver their presentation, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A, a wine reception and optional dinner at Rewley House for 18.30.

The evening dinner is an opportunity for research students from across a variety of disciplines to meet one another, as well as departmental staff. The dinners form a regular, but informal, termly 'hub' for students and staff to discuss their research interests in a friendly and sociable atmosphere.

Please do let us know if you would like to speak at a forthcoming seminar, or if there is someone in particular from whom you would like to hear. We hope to have a mixture of staff and student speakers at each event.
