Groups

For GENERAL enquiries concerning Interest Groups contact the Interest Groups Co-ordinator, - position tbc. Contact John Moore, Chairman for the moment (CONTACT).

At present we have 40 Interest Groups as listed below. Each group has a Convener whose function is to act as administrator or leader in its various activities and meetings. For information about a Specific Group, including how to contact the Convener, click on the GROUP NAME in the BOXED LIST at the BOTTOM of this page.

Groups meet in members' homes or at other venues. Largely because of space constraints, there is a limit to the number of members that each group can accommodate. To learn if space is available contact the group Convener. If there is sufficient demand and if a member offers her or himself as Convener a second group might be initiated.

In addition, we also occasionally offer short courses of up to 10 sessions led or tutored by a member or associate. Examples of courses held in the last two to three years are World War 1, Astronomy, Cells, Genes, Genetic Modification, Topics in French Literature, Cultural Studies and Film Studies. If you could offer a course covering some aspect of your expertise or knowledge, please contact the Chairman.
