Research Events

As part of our commitment to produce and share new and innovative research, the Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies hosts numerous research events every year. Each research event allows students, staff and distinguished speakers from other universities to share and develop their ongoing research in a constructive and supportive environment.

These seminars are open to any students and staff within and outside the university. They are also open to any member of the public and are free to attend. Therefore, if you find an upcoming event that interests you please come along.
