The European Institute Lunchtime Seminar series serves to promote the exchange of ideas and arguments between research students and departmental staff regarding their work in progress in an informal setting. The seminar takes place three times per term during Tuesday lunch hour – members of the EI will be informed about the exact dates at the beginning of each term. The organisers invite both staff members and research students to either present their work or to act as a discussant for a topic related to their own research. Students/staff members who wish to submit their current work should contact Abel Bojar (staff coordinator - A.T.Bojar@lse.ac.uk|) or Sonja Avlijas (student coordinator - S.Avlijas@lse.ac.uk|). 

These seminars are REGISTERED events and advance booking is required.

Spaces are very limited. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. To attend, please RSVP to: j.o'connell1@lse.ac.uk|
