Warwick in London launches second Faculty Talks Series

This November will see the launch of Warwick in London’s second Faculty Talks Series following the huge success of the inaugural talks in the 2018/19 academic year.

Top academics from a wide range of Warwick Departments will join us in our London hub in order to deliver inspirational and exciting guest lectures on cutting edge research. The series is kicking off with a lecture from Warwick in London’s own Dean, and Professor of Economics, Abhinay Muthoo, leading with the hot topic of negotiations including Brexit negotiations.

From January onwards we will be joined by Professors Stephen Roper, Fabienne Peter, Rebecca Earle, Graham Cormode and Carsten Maple.

Lectures will be open to staff, students, other London universities and the general public but the main audience will be our own Warwick Alumni living in London and eager to interact with Warwick post-graduation.

In the last series we were lucky to welcome Professors Swaran Singh, Vera Troeger, Michael Scott and Suzy Moat. The lectures attracted many of our Warwick Alumni living and working in London who were delighted to be given the opportunity to engage with Warwick and network. Warwick staff, London Knowledge Quarter members and members of the general public also attended.

Professor Abhinay Muthoo, Dean of Warwick in London, said:

“I am absolutely delighted to be starting the series and that we have secured so many of our outstanding Warwick colleagues to take part in these lectures, this will be hugely beneficial to our Alumni relations with the many Warwick graduates living and working in the capital.”
