About

Organised by the Churchill MCR, this fascinating seminar series highlights cutting-edge research undertaken at all levels of academia within the Churchill College community. Held in an informal setting with discussion encouraged, these talks aim to make complex topics accessible to a general audience.

Presented by postgraduate students and Fellows from the College, this series provides stimulating summaries on a diverse range of topics, whilst at the same time delving deep into individual fields of research to uncover fascinating insights.

Churchill himself once said; "I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught" — with that in mind, we hope the online edition of these talks will be as fascinating and entertaining as they are insightful.

We hope you enjoy the talks and we encourage you to share your thoughts and comments and feedback on them with us.
