Autumn Discourses

See upcoming Discourses from the Ri in 2023, including talks on white holes, science education, and chemistry.

What are Discourses?

Discourses are the Ri’s most prestigious lecture programme, founded by Michael Faraday in 1825, and they focus on leading-edge advancements in science and society. Today the public can attend our Discourses in our world-renowned Theatre, but they can also watch them online via our livestream – opening the experience to audiences beyond London and the UK.
