Talks are given by Darwin students and fellows and are intended for a general audience. Meetings take place on Tuesdays at lunchtime in the Richard King Room. Everyone is welcome, whatever your discipline.

Darwin members pick up lunch from 12:45 as normal, taking it into the Richard King Room (on the left at the top of the stairs leading to the dining hall). Wine is served. Non-Darwin members are welcome to attend, although lunch is only available to guests of members. The talk begins at about 1:10 and lasts for about 20 minutes and is followed by questions over coffee. We adjourn at 2:00pm at the latest.

Currently we have a maximum capacity of 30 in the Richard King Room, so spaces on a first come first served basis.

For at least some of the seminars, it will be possible to attend the seminar remotely via zoom. Please contact one of the seminar organisers of you would like to attend a talk remotely.
