Meet the speakers...

The Matariki Lecture has been an annual event; with a faculty member from one Matariki partner institution traditionally delivering a public lecture with Q&A at one of the other partner institutions, (often as part of a wider visit).

In 2020, the Matariki Executive voted to build on this concept by developing a more regular series of lectures; with several presentations being delivered over a shorter period of time attached to the same broad theme.

The first such series, on the theme of “Human Evolution”, was successfully held in March 2021. Led and hosted by the University of Tübingen, speakers from Tübingen, Uppsala, Dartmouth and Durham delivered short (15 minute) lectures on different aspects of the wider topic, followed by a live Q&A / panel discussion session featuring all members.
