The Department of Politics and International Relations has announced the schedule of its seminar series, which takes place in February and March this year.

This term's seminars include presentations by colleagues from universities in Canada, Germany and Portugal (as well as the UK!) on subjects ranging from complexity to representation.

All seminars run from 4-6pm (unless otherwise stated) and will be held in the Westminster Forum, 5th floor Wells Street.
