Schuman Centre's Seminar Series
The Schuman Centre's Seminars bring together faculty and fellows of the Centre to discuss work-in-progress and participate in debates on topical issues. During term time the seminars take place every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, usually from 16.30.
The sessions alternate between the presentations of research projects of the Schuman Centre's post-doctoral fellows, giving them an opportunity to present their projects to, and to receive feedback from, a broad audience from various disciplinary backgrounds, and presentations and debates with internal and external speakers on a variety of topics.
The Seminars are open to the public but subject to registration and space availability.
