Public Lecture Series

The Aga Khan Humanities Project's (AKHP) public lectures fill the gap in the region’s academic infrastructure and foster discourse between the humanities and natural sciences. The series promotes an examination of the centrality of human values across all disciplines.

The lectures, delivered by scholars, artists and public figures, cover topics such as traditions, astronomy, digital economy, music, engineering, health, biodiversity, economic development, religion, history, academic freedom, education and urban development. Since the series began in 2012, almost 100 lectures have been delivered, and four follow-up books on the Public Lecture Series have been published.
