Events

HCRI engage with students, researchers, practitioners, government and policy makers through our talks, seminars, workshops and conferences.

Students sat in a lecture theatre watching a lecturer.

Our events take place throughout the year and are open to students, staff and the general public from the UK and abroad. 

We also record our events for podcasts, which are published shortly after for anybody who wasn't able to attend.

We're excited to be launching our online events series for Semester 1!

From our Landmark Lecture on travelling wounds to our end of term lecture with Remembering Srebenica on genocide denial, and everything in between, our virtual events are accessible and open to all. 

You can find out more detail about our upcoming events here, and keep a lookout for sign-up coming soon.
