About our meetings
We have five or six meetings each year. Most meetings will probably be near Euston or near South Kensington, since those are the locations of many of the group members. Researchers from further afield are very welcome to come along when visiting London – do introduce yourself when you arrive! After each meeting, we usually go to the pub, so there will be plenty of time to chat to everyone else.
Volunteer to speak at a meeting
If you would like to volunteer to speak, please contact Helen. At each meeting we’ll have two speakers, and we ask each speaker to talk for 20 minutes. The audience has researchers from a very wide range of areas, so overview or introductory talks are best. More detailed conversations can follow on afterwards (we usually go to the pub). The broad academic audience makes this is a fantastic way to discover overlaps between your work and that of other people.
