INSIGHTS Public Lectures

Welcome to the INSIGHTS Public Lectures website. Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all.

Our aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate. Many of our speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. Our lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

All lectures are free and open to all, with spaces allocated on a first-come first-served basis - for more popular talks an overspill room will be in operation. For some selected events you may be asked to reserve a place in advance.

Recordings of lectures

Many of our lectures are also available to download from our archive. Recordings of lectures are also available from Newcastle University's iTunes U page.
