INSIGHTS Public Lectures

Lectures will take place on campus every week during term-time.
Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building, NE1 7RY

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:

  • Are women better leaders than men, does diversity matter in military operations? by Major General Kristin Lund
  • Breaking down the barriers in the treatment of cardiovascular disease by Professor Vijay Kunadian
  • International Women’s Day: Oh Bondage Up Yours! A history of feminism by Dr Hannah Dawson
  • How building your digital twin will revolutionise medicine and change your life by Roger Highfield
