Seminars & Events

The Department of Political and International Studies regularly hosts seminars, public dialogues, book launches and other events. 

Our Friday seminar programme provides a platform for senior students, colleagues and visitors to share their ideas each Friday from 1-2pm in our Ruth Mompati Seminar Room.

Our annual Teach-In series has been held annually (usually in July) ever since 2002. The Teach-In brings a particular issue of interest and concern in the public sphere to the attention of the University and the wider community. We invite leading public commentators and scholars to share their ideas in relation to the chosen theme.

In addition to our seminars and teach-ins, we regularly hold other events such as public dialogues, public lectures and book launches.
