The interdepartmental Europe@LSE research seminar is jointly organised by the Government Department, the International Relations Department and the European Institute. It intends to provide a School-wide forum for research on Europe, beyond the borders of the European Union and in all disciplines. It is open to the academic public but it is hoped in particular that LSE staff and doctoral students doing research in relevant areas become regular attendants so as to create a scholarly community. Seminars usually take place once a month, over a sandwich lunch. The Coordinators for the 2013/14 academic year are Jan Komarek (EI), Eiko Thielemann (EI/GOV), Federica Bicchi (IR) and Steve Woolcock (IR).
For more information, please contact Dr Eiko Thielemann (E.Thielemann@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 firstname.lastname@example.org
