uncomfortable oxford Lectures

We have a large team of academic researchers who provide talks on a number of different subjects. Lecture bookings are for one hour and can be made for private or public events, online or in person. Time can be adjusted longer or shorter within reason. Book one of our ready-made talks below or get in touch to enquire about developing a bespoke lecture for your event.


Our guides are experts on the topics we cover, as well as in their respective research fields. They love to share what they know with new audiences and are happy to adapt their teaching style to different listeners. Booking one of our lectures for your event, society, business, or conference is a great way to spark interest in local history, while exposing your team or group to new ideas.

Additionally, our format is designed to be highly engaging for audience members. We challenge listeners to think and reflect on difficult topics while inspiring them to approach learning with an open and engaged mind.
