Lectures & speeches


Inaugural lectures

Inaugural lectures are a central part of university academic life. These events are held to commemorate the inaugural lecturer's appointment to full professorship. The inaugural lecture provides a platform for the academic to present the body of research that they have been focusing on during their career. The lecture also provides UCT with the opportunity to showcase its academics and share its research with members of the wider university community and the general public in an accessible way.
