UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities


Inaugural Lectures

Our Inaugural Lectures provide an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our professors who are undertaking research and scholarship of international significance.

The lecture series offers an insight into the strength and vitality of the arts, humanities and social sciences at UCL, and is jointly hosted by UCL's Faculty of Social & Historical Sciences and Faculty of Arts & Humanities

All our lectures are free to attend and open to all. You don't have to be a UCL staff member or student to come along.

Lectures begin at 18:30 and are typically one hour long. A drinks reception will follow, to which everyone is welcome to join.

You will need to reserve your place using the booking links below. 

We look forward to meeting you at one of our events.
