It catalyses interdisciplinary research and engagement as well as hosting a popular programme of Public Humanities events, including multi-annual lecture series, panel discussions and lectures by international public intellectuals.
The Trinity Long Room Hub is a dynamic physical and human infrastructure, an engine attracting world-class talent that builds and promotes Trinity’s and Ireland’s reputation internationally.
