Ushaw Lectures Series

The Ushaw Lecture Series celebrates the cultural and research significance of the remarkable bibliographical, archival and material-cultural collections of the collections that form part of the Durham Residential Research Library, and the wider history of which they are expressions. The lectures cover music, art, drama, poetry and literature, architecture, material-culture, politics, science and theology. These are public lectures and are held two times a term.

Really enjoyed Alison Shell’s Ushaw lecture last night on 16th-century English drama and Jesuits. I didn’t expect to laugh and learn so much. Wonderful. 🙂 @ResearchDurham @CCSDham @UshawLibrary @CatholicArcSoc https://t.co/exMhzWUbjE CatholicRS photo
