About the Parkville Seminar Series

The Parkville Seminars have been established to encourage collegiality between the colleges and HDR students, build a research culture based on expertise, peer review and modelling, and constructive academic collaboration, through an annual program of HDR Research Seminars.

The Parkville Seminars reflect the geographical location of the colleges, but also provide a cohesive and identifiable research body to enhance the learning experience of HDR students across the colleges.

Each of the six seminars in the annual program will allow a diverse mixture of research presentations from current HDR students, Honorary Researchers, faculty of the Colleges, and visiting scholars.

Seminars will take place from 2pm‐5pm on the second Monday of the month during the semester (contingent upon public holidays). For 2021, the program will be as follows:

  • Mon 8th March (hosted by Whitley College)
  • Mon 12th April (hosted by Trinity College Theological School)
  • Mon 10th May (hosted by Pilgrim Theological College)
  • Mon 9th August (hosted by Whitley College)
