Programme/Rhaglen 2023-2024

The CLCR Events Series comprises a wide range of academic and academically related gatherings. One of our main activities is Networking Roundtables which provide for group discussion of interests and possible future projects around a common theme. Examples of our other events include “minilloquia”, mini-colloquia, and “sliminars” (small seminars), formats which allow several speakers to present their research or thinking to a wide audience. We also, occasionally, host more conventional research seminar-type events in which invited audience members from across the University enrich discussions.

For more details or to suggest future events, event themes, or speakers, please contact Dr Amanda Potts.
