London Research Seminars
The London Research Seminars are a fortnightly opportunity for the London Global Gateway's faculty members to present research they are undertaking, welcoming questions and challenges from a multidisciplinary audience. Students, staff, academics and friends of Notre Dame are welcome and no specialist knowledge is assumed. A wide variety of subjects will be presented in a manner that it is accessible to all. Past topics for discussion have included television comedy writing, dynamics of political protests and the history of supernova neutrinos.
Each summer, the London Global Gateway hosts the Global Dome Exchange Program: an intensive seminar designed to accelerate dissertation progress and build international networks of young scholars in the humanities field. The program facilitates conversations between interdisciplinary graduate students and guest faculty from the University of Notre Dame, University of Oxford, King’s College London and University of Edinburgh. Over the three weeks, in daily workshop sessions, the students present and discuss early chapters from their dissertations, and garner feedback from their fellow participants.
