Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS)


Reading/Seminar Clubs

The aim of the Reading/Seminar Clubs is to host generative, cross-UCL conversations around shared interests in the hope of engendering new thinking, new outcomes and new collaborations.

The Institute of Advanced Studies currently hosts five established Reading/Seminar Clubs and we are happy to welcome five more. We can offer an online presence, marketing and (space allowing) a room with basic IT equipment.

The current call is open to PhD students as well as post-docs. Please send an expression of interest to Catherine Stokes specifying a theme or an idea that you would like to explore in a creative, open-ended and exploratory way; a team of colleagues; and the form of the group, e.g. reading group, seminar, etc.
