CSSS Seminar Series
The Centre for Science and Security Studies hosts two seminar series.
Our Brown Bag Lunch (BBL) Series is an opportunity for scholars to present work on issues related to science and security; a sub-set of this series focuses on issues of Nuclear Security. These seminars are open to both CSSS and KCL students and staff as well as external audiences. Examples of past speakers include Gary Samore (then the Special Assistant to the President and White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction, Proliferation, and Terrorism) spoke to CSSS students and staff in 2012 on the Iran nuclear issue; James Acton from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on ‘Conventional Prompt Global Strike: What happens when technology overwhelms strategy,’ and Bharath Gopalaswamy from SIRPRI on ‘The Role of Infrasound Detection in Verifying the CTBT’.
The Centre also hosts the Freedman PhD Seminar, at which PhD students affiliated with the Centre can present their work to fellow PhD students and staff members. Students are strongly encouraged to present at least twice over their PhD career, first in the run up to the mini-viva and then again in the run-up to the viva
If you are interested in presenting at either the BBL series or the Research Seminar series, or if you are a PhD student affiliated with the Centre who would like to present at the Freedman PhD Seminar, please contact Dr Susan Martin at email@example.com
