Sadler Seminar Series

Sir Michael Sadler was Vice Chancellor at Leeds from 1911 to 1923, when he introduced a series of public events and debates on a wide variety of topics, many arts-related, in a desire to increase contact not only between researchers from different disciplines, but between the University and the wider community.

It was in this spirit that our Sadler Seminar series began in 2015. The aim of the series is to support colleagues wishing to pursue research questions that, to be answered well, require collaboration across disciplinary lines.

The Sadler Seminars run for a year with activities each semester including talks, performances, debates, outreach activities, and grant-writing workshops.
