Lecture series

ART, autism, astrology and anatomy are among the subjects to be examined in the new season of the University of Dundee’s popular Saturday Evening Lecture Series.

The Series will celebrate its 88th Anniversary in 2012, and will run from later this month through to April. The first lecture in the 2012 series takes place on Saturday, January 21, when Dr Anna Campbell examines how cancer survivors can aid their recovery by taking more exercise. Dr Campbell is a lecturer in Clinical Exercise Science at Dundee. Over the past ten years, she has specialised in researching the role of exercise in cancer survivorship.

The Saturday Evening Lecture Series is Scotland’s oldest continuous free public lecture series. It attracts thousands of people each year to hear varied and thought-provoking lectures from prestigious, world-class speakers. All lectures will be held in the Dalhousie Building at 6pm. Drinks receptions will follow each lecture, and where appropriate, book-signings will be held. Tickets are available from events@dundee.ac.uk, or from the events office on 01382 385564.
