Donnellan Lectures

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.

2020 Lectures (Delayed Due to Covid Pandemic)

After a long delay due to the global pandemic, the 2020 Donnellan Lectures will be given by Professor Linda Trinkaus Zagzebski. Zagzebski is George Lynn Cross Research Professor emerita and Kingfisher College Chair of the Philosophy of Religion and Ethics emerita at the University of Oklahoma. She will be developing the central theme of her latest book,  The Two Greatest Ideas.

The lectures will take place on 31 March and 1 April 2022. Full details are available here
