Research and higher seminars

These are aimed at scholars working in related academic fields. Because many times researchers are presenting works in progress, they are not generally open to the public. Occasionally, members of the public may be welcome to attend. Contact Hans-Ingvar Roth,, for inquiries about the seminars.
