Events

As well as this website, we will also be hosting some seminars at Balliol College, Oxford and the Department of Social Sciences between Oxford 2018 and January 2019, to foster a sense of community among those who might be interesting in integrating theme parks into some part of their research. These are open to students of any level and academics at any university.

Equally, if you’re not involved with a university but you’re just curious to see what the academic study of theme parks might look like, you are very welcome too.


On Tuesday 20th November (Week 7) at 12.30-2pm in Meeting Room 132 at the Manor Road Building, University of Oxford Florian Freitag will be presenting our second seminar

The Manor Road Building is on Manor Road, about 5 minutes’ walk from Oxford city centre https://www.manor-road.ox.ac.uk/en/general/about .
