About

These seminars, which take place on Thursdays every week during term, allow us to explore some of the creative, critical, ethical, political or methodological aspects of research as a practice. They are led by members of the CRASSH community, but researchers across the University are welcome to join us. An essay or book chapter will be set for reading in advance of the seminar.
