Public Lecture Series

Public Lectures

An exciting programme of lectures by high-profile and engaging speakers.

We invite you to explore some of the critical issues of our time with expert speakers, as part of our public lecture series 2015/16.

From global business, human rights, the social role of the museum, to racism, fundamentalism and a democratic education, the series promises to be diverse and thought provoking.
