The Chancellor’s Distinguished Lectures focus on subjects that help narrow the widening gap between fast moving advances in knowledge acquisition and their understanding and appreciation by the general public. The individuals selected as lecturers are chosen to fulfill the lectureship’s important public outreach function and to contribute to an understanding and appreciation of rapid advancements and important nuances in their fields. Our lecturers are chosen on the basis of their international renown and their ability to speak and interact with a well-informed public audience. Presented by The Damrauer Endowed Lectureship Fund.
