The seminars in 2021-22 will continue on Zoom. The seminars are all at 5 p.m. UK time (BST for Seminar 1, GMT for Seminars 2 and 3). Individual presentations will be about half an hour, followed by invited discussants who will engage the speaker in conversation about the paper, before the floor is opened for comments and questions by others.
If you are planning to attend a seminar this term, please register using this form:
. For each seminar, those who have registered will receive an email with the Zoom invitation, instructions for joining the call, and further materials for the seminar.
In each seminar, you’ll be able to join the call up to half an hour before the seminar for a virtual ‘meet and greet’. If you have any questions about this process, please email Matthew Thomson (matthew.thomson -at- ucd.ie
