Meeting Description:

The Discourse and Politics Seminar Series 2021 is a virtual, multidisciplinary research seminar on how language (mis)informs political understanding.

Panel sessions will take place on Microsoft Teams every two weeks, starting on January 11, 2021. The sessions will take place from 11am to 12.30pm and 4pm to 5.30pm every other Monday.

Speakers will present for 20 minutes and after all presentations, there will be a chance to ask questions of participants.

Registering will give you access to the Microsoft Teams links for all five panel sessions but you are welcome to attend only those sessions which appeal to you.
