Inaugural Lectures 2017-18

Keele's programme of Inaugural Lectures is delivered by newly established professors within the University and aims to give an illuminating account of the speaker's own subject specialism. The lectures, which start at 6.15pm in the Westminster Theatre and last approximately an hour including Q&A, are chaired by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Trevor McMillian.
