The Donnellan Lectures were set up in 1794 through the initiative and generosity of Anne Donnellan. The lectures were originally given under the auspices of the School of Hebrew, Biblical and Theological Studies but since 1987 they have been run on a roughly triennial basis by the Department of Philosophy and are no longer theological in nature.
The 2017 Donellan Lectures will be given by Professor Susan Wolf (University of North Carolina), May 22-24.
