CCLPS Seminar Series
Details of Seminar Series in the Centre for Cultural, Literary and Postcolonial Studies (CCLPS).
The CCLPS Seminar Series aims to fulfil one of the centre's primary objectives to pioneer disciplinary and interdisciplinary practices through regular seminars on Comparative Literary, Cultural and Postcolonial Studies in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
The seminars are open to SOAS students and staff, to academics and students of other institutions and to the general public. These seminars are often linked to other activities, such as lectures, research workshops and conferences, and constitute one of the key intellectual endeavours of the centre.
The CCLPS seminar series takes place on Wednesdays from 3.15pm - 5pm in B111, Brunei Gallery, during the autumn and spring terms in 2016-17. Events are free and open to the public and tea is served.
