Lunchtime Talk

Welcome to the Clare Hall Thursday Lunchtime Talks, which take place during term time at 1.00pm in the meeting room, behind the porters' lodge 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 15 minutes of open discussion.

Please bring your lunch to the meeting. Water, napkins, and fruit are provided.

If you would like to give one of these talks, please sign up at the online doodle pool, or email Kun LI at, and Marianne Eriksen at
