English Language Research seminars

The ELR seminars are a long-running weekly research seminar series within the Department of English, English Language and Applied Linguistics Division.

The seminars are aimed primarily at staff, post-graduate students, and academic visitors in the department, but everyone with an interest in language research is welcome! Seminars are usually held on Tuesdays during term time, starting at 4:15 and finishing around 5:30.
