Environmental Humanities research exchange lunch
Thursday, 15 February 2018, 12 – 2pm
On Thursday 12 February, the Environmental Humanities emerging theme hosts a community-building lunch in the Trinity Long Room Hub (12.00-14.00 Neil Lecture Theatre). The aim of the Hub and the emerging theme is to support a growing research community in a field that is as rich and exciting as it is important.
Recently, the Trinity Centre for Environmental Humanities was formally recognised by College. Members of the centre will make short presentations of ongoing research. However, the focus of the event will be to encourage discussions and collaboration between colleagues and research students working across College’s many disciplines. The aim will be to identify ways to develop the emerging research theme.
