Seminars and Conversations

Join us for our flagship interactive events

Our live cross-departmental seminars and conversations allow participants to engage firsthand in critical analysis and historical debate. These dynamic sessions are an integral part of all courses and foundation certificates across the school and are also available to public.

AHP students are expected to attend and participate in them in order to successfully complete their courses. Select alumni and academics will be invited to attend. If you are a student or academic from one of our partner African Studies Departments, please contact your Department’s staff for access details.

Our sessions are also open to the public, please click on the links below to register.
