The Centre hosts an inter-disciplinary research seminar during term-time. Speakers are invited to present for approximately half an hour on a topic in applied ethics. The presentation is followed by informal discussion.
Papers are invited from a broad range of disciplines related to ethics. The sessions are designed to help all involved to benefit from each other's expertise.
The seminar currently runs for 12noon - 1.15pm on Wednesday afternoons, at the IDEA Centre during term time. All are welcome and there is no need to book.
