Our ten Gresham Professorships, many of which date from 1597, are filled by leaders and pioneers in a range of scientific and artistic fields. Each Professor serves for three years and delivers at least six free lectures each academic year. Read more about how we recruit speakers.
Our Visiting Professors typically serve for one year and help us deliver lectures on subjects beyond our historic remit, including on cutting-edge science, current legal, political and artistic thought.
We invite many other leading thinkers, including Gresham's Emeritus Professors, to deliver lectures each year on under-represented, topical or ground-breaking subjects. We also accept submissions for lectures - read more.
