Upcoming SCID Seminars

SCID Seminars

This seminar series is a compliment to the Social Complexity of Immigration and Diversity project: it provides invited speakers, with an interest in applying complexity theory-derived models to the social sciences, a supportive forum for debate and discussion.

The seminars are open to all and will be of interest both to those already engaged with complexity-based approaches and those wishing to explore this area for the first time.

Unless listed otherwise below, seminars are held on the last Friday of each month from 1pm – 2.15pm, and are held in The Board Room (2.016)  Arthur Lewis Building.  (no. 36 on campus map)
