The Humanities Department at Museums Victoria are pleased to announce that their schedule lecture series returns to the Melbourne Museum Theatre in 2017.
We have locked in our monthly dates and times but are still fine-tuning the list of speakers, so please continue to watch this space for further updates. You will see that we are shaking things up a bit this year, offering more than the usual one or two evening lectures we have presented in our past series. We are also breaking with the usual lecture pattern here and there, to take advantage of securing some great speakers who will be in town on those dates.
We look forward to seeing you over the coming months for what promises to be another exciting series.
