Laurentius Lectures

St Peter's 13-18

Laurentius Lectures

Laurentius Lectures 1

We launched our Laurentius Lecture series this week with two fascinating lectures delivered by pupils in the Lower Sixth.

Will's lecture focused on 'Settler colonialism, race and the logic of elimination' whilst Elysia revealed 'The gruesome origins of our classic fairytales'.

The Laurentius Lecture series provides an opportunity for Academic Scholars at St Peter’s to share ideas on topics that are of interest to them. Pupils deliver a short lecture of fifteen minutes to their peer group, the Head Master, the Head of Scholars and members of staff with a particular speciality in a given area, followed by questions from the floor.

This year’s programme shows a breadth and variety of interests from Sustainability, Neuroscience, Law, Artificial Intelligence and Veterinary science through to aspects of Music, Fine Art, Linguistics, History, Literature and Design.

The lectures run every Monday at 1pm in year group bubbles, although other year groups are welcome to join on Zoom.
