The Communication, Media and Journalism (CMJ) group regularly host seminars in which our own researchers and those from other institutions share their work.
If you'd like to suggest a speaker for a future CMJ seminar, please email the seminar series coordinator Dr Dmitry Chernobrov at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic our research seminars are currently taking place online. Please see below for details of the semester 2 programme for 2020-21. All times are UK time.
