Episode 55: “Recent” IBAHCM Highlights

Autumn seems to have run away with us… just too many exciting things happening! In this episode, the Naturally Speaking team reflect on some of the Institute’s many achievements of the last few months (July – October, 2017). Steve Larcombe, James Burgon and Taya Forde discuss some of their favourite publications, highlight funding and PhD viva successes, and welcome the newest (and largest ever!) group of Master’s students to IBAHCM, including a new editor for NS, Jacqueline Jacot.
