For its 2012/13 Autumn Seminar Series (October - December 2012), the Institute of North American Studies has invited a range of speakers to talk
about their research in the area of Race Matters: Interdisciplinary Approaches.
Anyone wishing to attend can just turn up - there's no need to book in advance unless otherwise stated - but as space is limited it's a good idea
to arrive early. All seminars will take place at the Strand Campus
