Graduate Interdisciplinary Seminar
Fridays at 17.15 in Room 1.11
All Graduates are warmly invited to attend the Graduate Interdisciplinary Seminar (GIS) series, which will be running on Friday evenings throughout the Term. The Seminar format is usually two twenty-minute papers, each followed by questions and discussion, or one paper followed by a ‘snippet’ (a shorter presentation focusing on a more specific issue or problem, to be discussed at greater length). The GIS provides an ideal forum for discussing new ideas and developing presentational skills in a relaxed, friendly and supporting environment. The Seminars are always followed by drinks and dinner at a nearby pub, to which everyone is welcome
