Talks for Schools

The School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies offers a number of public lectures that are suitable for an audience of students drawn from local schools and colleges.

In addition, schools and colleges can request particular talks in particular fields, and if possible academics will attempt to cater their provision to the students' requirements.

Below are a number of example talks that can be given representing the breadth of the topics available.
