News and events
The December edition of the Café Research will have three talks being given, one of which is Irene Zempi presenting her talk entitled:' Islamophobia and the Face Veil in the UK'.
Cafe Research is an opportunity for research postgraduates to get together and talk about their research in an informal setting.
The aim of Café Research is to provide a series of informal social events where research students can meet, network, share ideas and even hone their presentation skills, over a glass of wine or orange juice. The evening will typically feature three or four researchers from across the university, who will describe their research in a manner that can be easily understood by people from outside their discipline.
The talks are from 6:00pm to 8:00pm and you can find out more and book your place by visiting the webpage
