Research and Pedagogy Seminar Series

The School for Cross-faculty Studies hosts regular research and pedagogy seminars throughout the academic year, open to all University students and staff. Presenters include internal staff and invited external speakers. Each event is focused on a topic related to their current research or pedagogical interests, followed by a Q&A and general open discussion. The seminars offer a collegial forum for presenting and debating various aspects of our teaching, research, outreach, and public engagement practices in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
