Lunchtime Talks

During term-time Clare Hall runs a series of informal meetings on Thursdays at 1pm, where recent research and projects in progress are presented by members of the College.  Lasting 40 minutes, the talk is followed by a lively question and answer period over coffee.  If you or your partner would like to share any aspect of your academic work in a relaxed environment, please contact  Ruby Reid Thompson, the College Archivist.


Welcome to the Clare Hall Thursday Lunchtime Talks, which take place during term time at 1pm in the Meeting Room, in the main College building.

These talks are a platform for sharing research in progress, work experience, and the presentation of published work. They serve as a sounding board for the thoughts and ideas from all members of the College, including spouses and partners. The presentations are about 35-40 minutes long, followed by a coffee break, and ending with a 15 minutes open discussion.

Please bring your lunch to the meeting. Fresh water, napkins and fruit are provided. If you feel that you would like to give one of these talks, please e-mail or see Lynne Richards, in the President's External Office (next to the Computer Room), in College.

We look forward to seeing you and for your ideas for future talks!
