The Faculty runs a regular Seminar series to facilitate research talks for the Faculty body and the wider University community. Through the hosting of talks by Faculty members and international scholars of renown, the FHSS Research Seminar Series aims to provide a platform for interdisciplinary exchange across the Faculty, international collaboration beyond UNNC, and to foster a vibrant research culture within the Faculty.

The inclusion of PhD candidates in the Series encourages integration of graduate students into the Faculty research culture and further enriches our students’ learning experience and research activities.

Talks are loosely defined into three categories.
