Psychology teaching fellow conducting a lecture

Our popular Late Summer Lecture series will travel through the past, present and future of literature this summer.

Late Summer Lectures has run each summer since 2010 – with free, public talks by early-career scholars from Durham and further afield.

Our 2021 series ranges from eighteenth-century epic to contemporary dystopia, and from the literature of the Southern USA to the poetry of Cumbria, and features a host of literary characters and themes, from dinosaurs and doctors to vampires and urban animals.

There will be speakers from the universities of York, Cambridge, Royal Holloway, Edinburgh, Sheffield, Exeter, UCL, and Tokyo, plus several from Durham.

Talks take place each Wednesday until October 6, beginning at 5.30 via Zoom.

All talks are free and open to all.
