LEL Research Seminars 2021-22

The research seminars take place bi-weekly in Samuel Alexander A201 on Tuesdays at 4pm. Some speakers will come to us in person, others present their talks on zoom only. Irrespective of how the speakers find their way to us, we use “dual delivery” for all talks, i.e. you can either join us in person or from your computer at home. Please subscribe to the seminar’s LISTSERV mailing list for the Zoom links and reminders about the events. You can subscribe through this link.

Please do join the events any way you can. Below is the schedule for semester 2
