Delivering a Lecture

If you are interested in delivering a lecture, please email Kelly McCormack on

Each lecture should be approximately 20 minutes in length, aimed at an audience of the general public (i.e. with no specific academic background) and address both the aims and the rationale of your specific research topic.

Research Students may find training on delivering talks to non-specialist audiences useful and can find booking information for these workshops here: Research Student Training Programme.
