TEAtime lecture series: sharing excitement in Humanities, 2012-2013

Published: 20 September 2012

Building on the success of the STEM TEAtime lecture series, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Humanities TEAtime lecture series in this academic year.

What is TEAtime?

TEAtime (Technology, Engineering and the Arts) is a free, exciting and informative lecture series giving students in years 11, 12 and 13 the opportunity to connect subjects they are studying in the national curriculum with current university research. The scheme already has a successful and well established history in Engineering and it is now being rolled out to Humanities, and involves our academics across the disciplines. The Humanities TEAtime lectures will be delivered by leading academics in their fields.
