The Living Room Lecture Series

A series of sh​​​ort talks by University of Gloucestershire academics from and to our living rooms.

In the spirit of social distancing, this series of short lectures will be streamed live on Facebook, each lasting for around half an hour including an opportunity to ask questions. The aim is to provide something of interest and curiosity to our varied community of students, staff, alumni, our local community and the general public. 

Topics are based on academic study and research appropriate to the current situation, although the subject areas are not necessarily ​directly related to coronavirus or lockdown and will provide our audience with something of more general interest than academic paper.
