Ideas and Political Violence Seminars
Over the course of Hilary Term and Trinity Term 2017, the Department of Politics and International Relations is convening a new seminar series on Ideas and Political Violence, with six planned seminars each term held on Thursdays at 4pm, in Lecture Room 6 at New College. We hope that participants and guest speakers may then continue the discussions over drinks at the Turf Tavern.
The series continues this Trinity Term, and we welcome interested attendees from across the university. Anyone interested in further information, should email one of the seminar convenors, Dr Elizabeth Frazer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr Jonathan Leader Maynard (email@example.com).
