INAUGURAL LECTURES
The Vice-Chancellor’s Inaugural Lecture series is a central part
of university academic life, commemorating the appointment of
lecturers to full professorships. These events provide a platform
for an academic to present their body of research, sometimes
a focus of their entire careers.
In addition, the lectures allow UCT the opportunity to
showcase its academics and share its research with members
of the wider university community and the general public.
In 2018 UCT celebrated seven inaugural lectures:
