HUMCASS Colloquium Series

Colloquium. Noun.
1. An informal meeting for the exchange of views.
2. An academic seminar on a broad field of study, usually led by a different lecturer at each meeting.

HUMCASS represents a very broad mix of disciplines. The fortnightly colloquium series provides an opportunity to showcase that variety in an informal, collegial environment. Presentations may represent completed, in-progress or planned work, and sessions may be delivered by one or multiple presenters.  In all colloquium sessions the overarching intention is to start a conversation focused on, but not limited to, the presenter's own field of research; and in so doing seek to support, foster and facilitate a vibrant research culture within HUMCASS and across the Gippsland Campus.

Semester 2

All sessions will be held in 1N 207 from 1-2 pm on Thursdays.
