Departmental Conversations

 Sir John Tenniel's Classic Illustrations of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland  | by Public Domain Review | Alice's Adventures In Wonderland | Medium

'What is the use of a book,' thought Alice, 'without pictures or conversations?'

Warwick's ECLS presents a series of informal conversations about student and staff research. These conversations consider our research: what we're doing, how we do it, how we plan it, and why it matters. There will be no assigned readings, and all ECLS students--undergraduate and postgraduate--are most welcome.
