The Life-Writing Lunch is a termly lunchtime seminar series, in which practising auto/biographers discuss their work-in-progress in an informal, friendly setting.
Over a buffet sandwich lunch, speakers talk for around twenty minutes about methodological or research issues they are currently facing in their work. This is followed by enthusiastic discussion with and between audience members, generating ideas that may prove helpful to all concerned.
The lunches take place each term in the Haldane Room, Wolfson College, on the Tuesday of 8th week, between 1pm and 2pm. A buffet sandwich lunch is provided, and all are welcome.
There is no charge, but you must book online, via our page on the Online Stores, in order to attend.

Professor Mark Casson (University of Reading) and Professor Marc Ventresca (Wolfson College, Oxford) Social scientists study phenomena in which people play a fundamental role: the economy, law, the internet, Brexit, and so on.
