About the ISH Guest Lecture Series

Every year, we invite speakers from across the heritage sector to speak on a range of topics covering all aspects of heritage science, cultural heritage policy and practice. The lectures are free and open to everyone; we particularly encourage our external partners, friends, alumni, Master’s and doctoral students and staff to attend, as well as colleagues from across The Bartlett Faculty and UCL. Every perspective and unique insight on the challenges facing heritage and heritage policy are hugely valuable to our audience.

This year the Institute will host talks on imaging, Stonehenge, poetry, data, risk, policy, and the natural world. Full details of speakers and topics will be released throughout the year – keep an eye on the Institute's website and Twitter for further information. Issues that have been covered in the past include heritage leadership, governance and policy, as well as conservation practice within the context of sustainable development.
