The SOAS Development Studies Seminar Series

By Tayba Ahmed|July 1, 2019|News & Research|0 comments

Outside the confines of classrooms, the SOAS Development Department has a lot of activity happening throughout the academic year.

The most well-received and well-attended lecture series is the Development Studies Seminar Series organised by Feyzi Ismail and Alfredo Saad-Filho. The seminar takes place weekly across both terms with speakers representing the full range of development-related disciplines including economics, political science, anthropology, sociology, and history.

Every week, the series bring together a cohort of people, from all walks of life, including both the SOAS and wider community where they are provided with a space to critically engage in countless thought-provoking and pressing issues in development. Some of the discussions involve an engagement with the underlying theories that shape the power, politics, and profit of humanitarianism and aid, while others focus on the threat of climate crisis in both the Global North and Global South.

Every lecture is recorded and posted online. To access some of the previous seminar lectures follow the link here:

Many of the discussions are continued on our social media. To find out the latest news and highlights and join the conversation, follow the Development Studies Seminar Series Twitter page on: @SOASDevelopment.
