ThinkLab - University of Salford, UK

Last August I was invited to the integrate the #PhilosphyFriday get-togethers some of our research students in ISOS informally organise. For an hour or so a week we chat away about our philosophical and methodological questions. This is a neat way to make sense of what we know, what we think we know, and what more we need to know. We share, we learn, and we end up having more to share. From those meetings another idea started to emerge. We are now about to launch it.

Salford Method is a student led seminar series which runs once a month in a blended format, i.e, all session will be offered at a physical venue and broadcast live online. Speakers unable to come to Salford will interact with the audience via web-conferencing. In such cases, no physical venue will be provided.All events are free to attend

The first two events of this series have already been booked.

The first event of academic year 2010-11 will happen in October, 26 at 3pm.
