INSIGHTS Public Lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all.

Newcastle University's public lecture programme, INSIGHTS, cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

The lectures are delivered by leading public figures and eminent scholars. Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.

All our events remain free and open to all, but pre-booking is now required. Bookings for lectures will open at 10.00am one week before the event.

Upcoming lectures include:

  • Why your DNA is not your destiny by Professor Jelena Mann (Thursday 8 February)
  • Collecting, archiving and celebrating LGBTQIA+ and alternative sexualities: The adventures of an archivist by Stef Dickers (Tuesday 20 February)
  • General Election 2024: Is change really possible? by Pippa Crerar (Thursday 29 February)
