Speculative Lunches offer a forum for informal discussion, enabling Leeds colleagues to debate interdisciplinary research ideas at an early stage of formulation, with a view to potentially establishing research collaborations around particular themes.
This year the series is promoting and supporting interdisciplinary collaboration within the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures. Each lunch will be co-ordinated and led by two members of academic staff, based in two different Schools in the Faculty of AHC.
Participation will be open to staff, postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate students across all Faculties in the University of Leeds.
