Talks take place almost every Tuesday during full term and are open to the public and to all university members. Our aim is act as a forum for stimulating ideas across the boundaries between the Humanities and other fields of study. We also offer a programme with international interest, featuring talks on a range of countries and themes from a range of periods, with a balance between early career researchers, up and coming scholars, and world class professors. We like to involve audiences in a discursive Q and A session after talks.Our ambiance is inclusive and welcoming, offering refreshments before and after events.
