The Humanities Institute's Distinguished Guest Lecture Series has been designed both to attract world-class academic speakers to Ireland and to raise the profile of the Institute's mission and programme.  Since 2005, a number of international experts have been incited to reflect on the contribution of the humanities and social sciences to the establishment of a knowledge society underpinned by sustainable economic, social and cultural growth.
