The Seminar Series remains an important dimension of LCMRS activity, enriching the research environment for staff and postgraduate students alike – but also offering a key channel through which we can communicate our research to a wider audience of colleagues from other institutions and also the general public.

Many of our events are therefore open for anyone to attend, and our ‘Key Lectures’ series – which has in recent years featured Professor Alec Ryrie speaking on the history of atheism, and Professor Lyndal Roper on the Protestant history of anti-semitism – seek to engage the wider community in a historical approach to sues of contemporary debate.

Our seminar programme more widely brings wide-ranging interdisciplinary research and links with external and often international partners to Liverpool. In recent years, the series has been increasingly used to support research networking of members with a view to assisting future collaborations and grant applications. Other seminars in our series are often linked to taught undergraduate modules, enabling students also to benefit from the latest work of our members.

Recent speakers include Professor Professor Robin Fleming of Boston College, USA, Professor Chris Wickham of All Souls College, Oxford, and Professor Michael Wood of the Univertsity of Manchester.
