Fellowship Lunchtime Lectures

The St Edmund Hall Fellowship Lunchtime Lectures aims to highlight the incredible depth and breadth of research across the College.

During each term four Hall Fellows present their research to an online audience, sharing a particular insight into their research. Alumni, students, staff and academics are welcome to attend these talks making them one of the most accessible academic lectures available to the community.

The lecture series was established in Michaelmas 2020 by Professor Andrew Kahn, Vladimir Potanin Tutorial Fellow of Russian Literature and Modern Languages and Steward of the Senior Common Room.
