WIHEA Inaugural Lectures

WIHEA Inaugural Lectures are opportunities to celebrate current Fellows who are newly promoted or appointed Professors and to inform colleagues in the University, family, friends and the general public, about their teaching career so far and future directions.

Hosted in partnership with the department the lecture and a closing question and answer session are live streamed and available for all to view and pose questions. Invited guests will also have an opportunity to congratulate and socialise with the Professor at a drinks reception following the lecture.

All inaugural lectures are captured by either audio recording or video and are available on the following pages.
