Seminar programme

The CMJ group regularly hosts seminars in which our own researchers and those from other institutions share their work.

The programme for 2019-20 semester 2 is listed below.

These seminars are open to anyone with an interest in the subject, from within or beyond the University of Sheffield. If you wish to attend and are not associated with the University of Sheffield, please email journalism@sheffield.ac.uk in advance of the event to ensure that we can make sufficient space and seating available.

If you'd like to suggest a speaker for a future CMJ seminar, please email the seminar series coordinator Dr Dmitry Chernobrov at d.chernobrov@sheffield.ac.uk.
