LLCL School Seminar

The LLCL School Seminar takes place from 12.30-2pm on Wednesdays during semester, in the Japanese Studies Centre Auditorium (12 Ancora Imparo Way, Clayton Campus). Lunch is served from 12.30-1pm, and the presentations and discussion run from 1 to 2pm. The seminar exploits the rich cross-disciplinarity of LLCL by exploring themes and questions from multiple disciplinary angles, often over a number of weeks. It is conceived as a non-hierarchical seminar where Honours students, PhD candidates and postdocs present alongside members of the lecturing staff and distinguished invited guests.
