Do you have a journey you want to share with others? Can you inspire, entertain and engage a public audience? Have you always wanted to speak on the Society’s Ondaatje Theatre stage?
If so, apply now to become one of 2021’s microlecturers.
Geographical journeys: microlectures is an informal event organised by the Society’s Younger Members’ Committee which aims to inspire, entertain and engage both Society members and the public about our world. Each microlecture is just 10 minutes long, with an additional five minutes of audience questions, and must have a geographical focus and share aspects of what was learnt on the journey. It’s not an evening for experienced speakers or academic presentations, but a chance for the next generation to try their hand at public speaking.
Last year’s speakers included Jamie Rutherford who ran the length of Hadrian’s Wall in a single day; Shreyashi Dasgupta who went in search of her grandfather’s house in Bangladesh, 70 years after partition; and Ruairi Glasheen who travelled to Iran to meet the young musicians drumming new life into ancient Persian traditions. If you’re after inspiration for your talk, watch the previous microlectures.
Application deadline: 23 October 2020
Geographical journeys: microlectures: Thursday 11 March 2021 at 7.00pm
All speakers must be over 16 years of age and be a Fellow or member of the Society at the time of the event.
