Star Lecture Series
The Star Lecture Series has been developed by the University to allow teachers and pupils access to exciting curriculum resources delivered by some of our leading academic staff. Filmed and recorded at the University, these lectures cover topic areas on the national curriculum and exam syllabuses, link students' studies to current research and offer an insight into university study.
The series aims to cover a variety of different subject areas and age ranges, from Year 9 to sixth form students.
On the panel to the left you can find links to all of the Star Lectures that have already been filmed, along with accompanying information such as suggested further reading.
Upcoming Star Lectures
British propaganda and the first world war: imagining a united nation – Wednesday, 8 January 2014
Dr Chris Godden
Dr Godden will consider the ways in which British men and women understood the war while it was being fought, as well as analysing the role played by British government propagandists. Through an examination of several first world war propaganda posters, students will work towards answering the following questions:
- What did war mean in the summer of 1914?
- What had it come to mean by 1917?
- What were British citizens told to think about the war?
The event is aimed at post-16 students. For further information call 0161 275 8924.
Our YouTube channel has a number of videos about The University of Manchester. Edited versions of the Star Lecture by Professor Brian Cox and future lectures from the Star Lecture Series will be available there for use by learners and teachers.
