The Bartlett International Lecture Series – Autumn 2020
30 September 2020
Speakers from across the globe are now confirmed for The Bartlett's flagship public lecture series this Autumn.
All events in these series will be streamed live to the school's YouTube channel at 18:00 (UK time).
This year, The Bartlett’s International Lecture Series (ILS) will move away from ‘lecturing’ towards ‘conversing’. The series aims to upend academic conventions, undermine traditional knowledge-power relationships, and place a bright spotlight on issues of equality, equity, diversity and inclusion.
Students, tutors and the public are invited to join together virtually with a range of extraordinary and accomplished thinkers, practitioners and activists from within and around the architectural sphere. Each event will be curated and co-hosted by a student and tutor working together, aiming to create a culture of care and laughter, and to inspire and encourage its audience.
Every speaker will be invited to finish the sentence: “If I was an architecture student right now I’d...?”
All events will be streamed on the school's YouTube channel at 18:00 (UK time). No registration is necessary.
This event series was curated in collaboration with PeopleMatter.
