To support and encourage talent development, the seminars function as a platform for collaborative exchange and discussion. These exchanges can range from already developed papers to work-in-progress presentations as well as dialogues in relation to specific theoretical, methodological, or empirical questions.

The seminars are held online, once a month, on the first wednesday of the month, during lunch time, guaranteeing the participation of as many scholars involved as possible.

The 2023 Autumn Semester Brown Bag Seminar series will start in September of 2023, and have four sessions during the semester.

The Seminars are co-coordinated by Manté Vertelyté and Hannah Moscovitz, Postdoctoral Research Fellows at DPU.

The monthly online seminars allow early career scholars to present their works in progress and receive feedback along the way.
