The first Annual Archives and Special Collections Lecture was delivered by Professor Owen Dudley Edwards in October 2011.
On that day, a precedent was set and since then we have succeeded in delivering a varied and colourful programme of public lectures that appeals to University members and external users alike.
Traditionally, the Archivist has invited speakers who have spent a substantial period of time researching a particular subject at the Archives and Special Collections or who specialise in a subject area of relevance to the department.
Here is a list of previous lectures.
