Work in Progress Meetings

The Department meets throughout teaching weeks to share work in progress. This might include papers and chapters in preparation, book proposals, funding applications or ideas for new research projects and collaborations. Post graduate research students are encouraged both to attend and to present at these meetings, which are open to faculty, PGT and PGR students.
