Lightning Rods

Lightning Rods is a forum for ideas which cross the boundaries between different areas of expertise within and beyond the Humanities Research Centre.  The purpose of Lightning Rods is to open a conversation which starts from a book, film, event or idea which has had effects, repercussions, and a kind of electrical energy, in different areas of knowledge and research. 

The HRC welcomes suggestions for topics to be included within the series - please contact Dr Kate Giles (

All seminars are held in the Treehouse, Berrick Saul Building.  All are welcome!
