Public Lectures

Join us for our flagship public conversations

Our ambitious public lecture programme allows participants to engage firsthand with African historical and intellectual narratives, led in conversation by AHP academics and some of the world’s leading thinkers in African studies.

These dynamic sessions are central to our commitment to public programming and are fully integrated into the Foundation Certificate in African History and Political Thought, allowing students to easily transition to the course should they wish to.
