Lunchtime Research Seminars

All students at Darwin are encouraged to present their research at informal seminars held on Tuesdays and Thursdays during term. All members are welcome, whatever your degree or discipline. These talks are an excellent opportunity for members to become acquainted with the enormous breadth of research that is undertaken by Darwin Students. Members on two or three year courses are encouraged to present a talk at some time in the duration of their study.

Darwin members pick up lunch from the Servery at 12.45pm as normal, taking it into the Richard King Room (on the left at the top of the stairs leading to the Dining Hall). Non-Darwin members are welcome to attend, although lunch is only available to guests of members. The talk begins at about 1.15pm and lasts for about 20 minutes and is followed by questions over coffee. The seminar will finish by 1.45pm at the latest.  Everyone is welcome to attend both groups.  Please return your trays to the clearing station in the Hall by 1.50pm.


Tuesday lunchtime is generally devoted to topics in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Thursday lunchtime is generally devoted to topics in Technology and the Natural Sciences.

The current programmes are available from the service. There is also an archive of past programmes from years predating the service.
