RIAH's annual series of free public lectures brings the best of Arts and Humanities research from Swansea and beyond to new, non-academic audiences: policy-makers, opinion formers, the general public.

Academic researchers from Swansea and other institutions are joined by leading public figures - politicians, film-makers, journalists, social commentators - in a diverse programme designed to link traditional academic research with contemporary issues and debates.
