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.

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.
