SOCRATES Seminar

The SOCRATES Seminar is a weekly space for research talks by members and invited speakers.

Fellows may present their own work and receive focused feedback or engage with the work of visiting speakers relevant to the Centre’s mission.

As an alternative to research talks, the weekly seminar will occasionally take the form of brainstorming or explorative meetings consisting of very short pitches for research ideas followed by extensive, longer discussions. This format is hoped to foster novel interdisciplinary research projects.

If you are interested in attending a talk or presenting something yourself at the SOCRATES Seminar, please contact the coordinator.
