A directory of inaugural lectures delivered by geographers at UK universities.
Inaugural lectures are typically given by academics to mark their appointment to a professorship or other senior academic position. They are often open to the public and focus on the academic's area of research expertise. This page lists inaugrual lectures which have been delivered by geographers at UK universities in recent years and are available to watch, listen to or read online. This directory is dynamic; if you know of other geographical inaugural lectures which are available online, we’d like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
