Newnham has a tradition of pudding seminars at Friday lunchtime, at which members of the College (undergraduate, graduate or Senior Member) give a brief 20-minute talk for a general audience on their current research, followed by questions, and accompanied by coffee and cake. There are usually four seminars a term. The talks begin at 1.15 pm and there will be ample time to make your 2.00 pm commitments. Tea, coffee and cake is available from 1.00 pm.
If you are interested in giving a pudding seminar during 2012-2013, please contact Delphine Mordey, Bianca Gaudenzi or Susan Haines.
