Departmental Seminar Series

Our Departmental Seminars are open to anyone who has a keen interest in East Asia whether you are an academic in the field, a student or a member of the public who would like to learn more about the region. Our seminars aim to provide a setting for intellectual debate, sharing ideas and collaboration.

Talks will run from 4pm until 6.45pm (at the latest) and are often followed by a drink reception.
