Due to the success of online events in 2020, research events in 2021 will continue to be hosted via online platforms. Please check the Calendar page for details.

ALC's research seminars provide an opportunity for lecturers and honorary and visiting researchers to present research they are working on or have recently completed.

Seminars are structured with 30 minutes for presentation and 30 minutes for discussion.

Anyone who is interested is welcome. For events held at ALC, free parking is available along Ward Street (2-hour limit).
