I accepted Peter and Roselyne's invitation to take up a Residency in June and have had fun in
devising this timetable for the month:
Each 2-hour session will run from 10.30 to 12.30 and I will come with a 45-minute core talk to run from 11.00 to 11.45. That should provide some structure - but I am only too happy to respond to questions, provide readings from the books and articles - and generally move with the flow as the audience shapes the session.
