Dalrymple Lecture Series 2021
Archaeology, Climate Change and Sustainability: Island Perspectives , by Professor Jane Downes
Hosted by The University of Glasgow and Glasgow Archaeological Society, The Dalrymple Lecture series for 2021 will be delivered by Professor Jane Downes, Director of the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute.
In Scotland’s celebratory Year of Coasts and Waters and as world leaders gather in Glasgow for the UN Climate Change Conference COP26, the four evening lectures in this series will explore how island archaeology, from Rapa Nui in the Pacific to Orkney, contributes timely and vital understandings around sustainability and living with climate change now and in the future.
The four evening lectures in this series will be delivered from the 8th-11th November 2021 in the Sir Charles Wilson Building at The University of Glasgow and simultaneously livestreamed.
Evening lectures will begin at 6.30pm, Monday-Wednesday and from 7.30pm on Thursday evening. The lectures will be followed by a short Q&A session. Doors will open half an hour before and due to Covid regulations, numbers are limited to 40 people with 1m social distancing in operation and face masks required.
