Research Café goes to Liverpool Central Library

Research cafe at Central libraryFor the first time we are opening up our Research Café to the general public, giving everyone the opportunity to hear about some of the fascinating research being undertaken right in the heart of Liverpool city centre.

Four internationally acclaimed academics will have just 10 minutes to give a snapshot of their research and with topics ranging from exploding stars to early man and the literary world of the 1980s, there’s something for everyone on the agenda.

This information event will also feature a Q&A session after each talk, giving you an opportunity to delve deeper and discuss the wider relevance and impact of the research.

So why not escape the Christmas shopping for a while and settle down for an afternoon of insight and debate with LJMU.
