In the School of Politics and International Studies, we host a vibrant schedule of events including weekly seminar series, special events, annual lectures, workshops, and conferences.
Research seminar series
The School of Politics and International Studies seminar series is designed to showcase the wide variety of work going on across the school. Look out for our regular events and hear from our staff, post-docs and PhD students as they present their ongoing research.
