2014 Public Lecture Series
Once again we have an exciting programme for our 2014 Public Lecture Series, organised in conjunction with a number of local Muslim organisations based here in Cardiff. We have organised a rich and varied programme of speakers, and we hope you can attend one or more of the lectures. The new IUKC Brochure has full details of all speakers as well as information about recent activities here at the Centre, news about our publications, details of graduate student research, and reminders about upcoming courses and events.
Advance booking for the Public Lectures is not essential and last minute attendees are most welcome. However if you definitely intend to come to one or more of the lectures, it would be most useful if you could register via our “Book online now” links on the event calendar below.
Many of our previous years lectures are now available on our Vimeo Site.
