Lockdown Lectures from The University of Manchester

Are you looking for something more than your next Netflix box-set binge or Spotify ‘top 100’ playlist to help you through the lockdown? Then why not join some of the nation’s foremost scientists, thinkers, historians and social commentators for some informal lectures from the comfort of your own home.

We'll be introducing you to some of The University of Manchester’s amazing researchers. From physicist Brian Cox to historian David Olusoga, our celebrated experts will be going online to tell you about what inspired them to help change the world.

The interviews are conducted by Megan Ritchie, a third-year Politics and International Relations student at Manchester. You can join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #lockdownlectures.
