Seminar Series Videos
The Department of Sociology & Criminology host a regular monthly seminar series. This is a time for all of us (Staff and Postgrads) to come together and share our work and ideas with one another. We want to create a positive and encouraging atmosphere so that we can have some fruitful exchanges and really learn about what each of us are working on to create and contribute to an ongoing conversation. Seminars also help to establish good professional links and contacts, and just generally facilitate our department’s research community.
The seminars are open to all interested staff and postgraduate students from other departments in the university, and beyond.
