Gem Forum is the weekly research seminar of the postgraduate students of the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek studies at the University of Birmingham. Students of the department share their research with their colleagues. GEM boasts an informal and friendly environment where students move beyond the confines of their research area, often furthering their knowledge through group discussions, games, and film screenings. GEM also features external speakers, furthering the exchange of scholarly research and knowledge amongst students of Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek studies in the UK.
Customarily, it takes place every Wednesday, at 17.15, at the Whitting Room (436, Arts Building)
