The Departmental Seminar is central to the academic life of the Department, and runs most weeks in term time on Fridays 2.30-4.30pm in Hicks Building Lecture Theatre 4.

Speakers send their paper in advance and speak for around 30 minutes, followed by discussion. Afterwards the discussion continues in a local pub.

Papers are normally available three days before the meeting; enquire in the Departmental Office. For more information contact Niall Connolly.  All are welcome!
