Seminar Series

The seminar series is HCW’s most regular event and provides excellent opportunities to keep in touch with fellow postgraduates, and network with speakers from a variety of institutions. We also record certain seminar series papers and make them available online as podcasts – please follow this link for podcasts from previous papers.

If you are interested in presenting a paper please see our open call for papers.
