Lightning Research Talks

Come As You Are

Sun 12 Nov 2023





3pm - 4.30pm

Lightning Research Talks

Hosted by LGBTQ+ Society

Academia can sometimes feel restricted to a special few, inaccessible to most. But it doesn’t always have to be. Trans and Non-Binary researchers from the University of Exeter have put together short talks explaining their areas of study, ranging from joy to Queer Monks and necromancy, and even how archaeology is a non-binary subject (which contains a brief interlude into corvids!). Feel free to come along and listen to these relaxed talks, and then chat with the researchers if you’re feeling inspired.

Come As You Are is free to attend. Events are first come, first served – but you must book a free ticket to the festival here >> 

Please note that some events will have a limited capacity.
