Registration for CTE Seminars in 2021 is still open. Our first series contains six seminars, each one based on a particular theme: landscape, travel, drugs, materials, communication, and (agri)culture. These seminars will take place every month consecutively between December 2020 and May 2021. Each speaker will present their 10-minute paper followed by a response to both papers by their respondents. Group discussion, questions and comments will take place in the time remaining.  

Please use the Eventbrite links below to see more details about the speakers, register your attendance at each seminar, and receive the Zoom links. Or see our full programme here:
