Next Doctoral Inaugural Lectures take place on 24 May

The past is present in our next Doctoral Inaugural Lectures on Wednesday 24 May as PhD students from Archaeology and Museum Studies return to deliver presentations about their research.

Hosted by the Graduate School and organised by the Researcher Development Team, the Doctoral Inaugural Lectures feature presentations from among the University’s leading research degree graduates.

The lectures will begin at 5pm with Dr Rebecca Gordon (School of Archaeology and Ancient History) speaking on ‘Feeding the city: Animals, food and city life in post-medieval England (AD1500 -1900)’.

This will be followed by Dr Cintia Velázquez Marroni (School of Museum Studies) who will speak on ‘Researching a country in turmoil: History, museums and their visitors in contemporary Mexico’. This talk will describe and present research focused on the experiences of visitors to two history museums in Mexico City.

The lectures will be held on Wednesday 24 May 2017 in the Ken Edwards Building, Lecture Theatre 3, followed by a reception.  All University staff and students and members of the public are invited to attend the Doctoral Inaugural Lectures. Book your free place in advance here.
