Ushaw Lectures Series

The Ushaw Lecture Series celebrates the cultural and research significance of the remarkable bibliographical, archival and material-cultural collections of the collections that form part of the Durham Residential Research Library, and the wider history of which they are expressions. The lectures cover music, art, drama, poetry and literature, architecture, material-culture, politics, science and theology. These are public lectures and are held two times a term.

I’m so excited to announce I’ll be spending Feb 2021 at Durham as a Residential Research Library Fellow. Thankful for all those trips there as a child that gave me a love and fascination for Durham @BedesBooks https://t.co/iwzv6NImkx
