Centre Seminar Series

The Centre has a regular Tuesday seminar series, as well as hosting one-off events through the year.

Tuesday seminars take place between 12:00 and 13:00 hrs - you can bring your lunch! These are designed to provide a regular point of contact between colleagues across the University with an interest in Environment, Heritage and Policy, but a warm welcome is extended to everyone. The aim is to: share and ‘test out’ new ideas; seek wider collaboration; disseminate research; strengthen and expand upon the established links between the Divisions and — most importantly — reinforce a strong and vibrant research culture. The seminars are intended to be very informal and have no standardised format. Postgraduate contribution and participation are actively encouraged. If you would like to disseminate your research, or just want to ‘bounce around’ ideas, please get in touch with Sally Foster.
