Speculative Conversations Series

Bright star shaped sparks

This scheme offers researchers in and beyond the arts and humanities the opportunity to discuss interdisciplinary research ideas at an early stage of formulation, with a view to establishing research collaborations around particular themes.

In 2021-22 Meetings can take place either in person over lunch in the larger LAHRI Seminar Room in Clothworkers South, or online.

They will be coordinated and led by at least two members of academic staff who are based in at least two different Schools, at least one of whom should be in the Faculty of AHC.

Participation is open to all staff, and postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers across the University. Owing to both the limitations of Covid-secure space and the fluency of online meetings, the maximum number of participants at these events is 12.

If you wish to run a Speculative Conversation then please check out the LAHRI Culture Hub for further information on the process.
