Each academic year, the College of Humanities and Social Science hosts a series of inaugural lectures given by new Professors in the College.
These lectures are an important part of life at the University of Edinburgh and the speakers give an illuminating overview of their contribution to their field.
Attendance is free and members of the public, staff and students are all welcome.
All inaugural lectures start at 5.15pm.
