Opportunity to present a UCL Lunch Hour Lecture this Autumn

30 April 2018

Lunch Hour Lectures

Lunch Hour Lectures are UCL's opportunity to engage with public audiences and to communicate the exceptional research that is taking place at the university. Over the past few years this lecture series has gained more and more popularity, with over 3000 people watching the lectures live, and a further 23,000 viewing them online. The Lunch Hour Lectures are open to all and are free.

We would be delighted to hear from colleagues who would like to give one of the Lunch Hour Lectures in the 2018-19 series. In the Autumn term the Lunch Hour Lectures will take place on Tuesdays in term time between 1.15pm and 1.55pm in the Darwin Lecture Theatre. The lectures are aimed at a general public audience. Lectures are generally introduced by a host and are filmed and streamed live. Presentations last between 30 and 35 minutes to allow time for Q&A with the audience. The Autumn term series will begin on Tuesday 2 October and run weekly until Tuesday 4 December.

If you would like to give one of the lectures, we would be grateful if you could provide us with a brief summary of your lecture (100 words or less) and a proposed title by Friday 25 May. Please remember that UCL Lunch Hour Lectures are intended for a public/lay audience.                            

This is an excellent opportunity for you to showcase the research you are doing at UCL and we are keen to receive submissions from a wide range of speakers. The lectures could also be panel discussions questioning and reflecting upon current issues and incorporating research topics.

To submit your suggestion please email Laurie Michel-Hutteau by Friday 25 May.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
