Work in Progress Meetings 2023/24

Work in Progress Meetings

Though we keep the title of 'Work in Progress' this in truth has evolved into a platform for us to reflect upon and sometimes read work in progress, but also discuss common themes in roundtable fashion, share sources, train one another in new approaches, or even just meet for a catch-up over tea.

These are usually held in FAB 3.32 on Wednesdays, 1pm - 3pm, with lunch.
