We are pleased to support The Royal Irish Academy Discourse Series, the oldest and most renowned series of talks in Ireland. The first discourses were presented in 1786. Historically, Academy discourses were the occasion reserved for the most distinguished academics to first reveal and discuss their work in public. Robert Mallet revealed his pioneering work on earthquakes and William Rowan Hamilton talked about quaternion algebra at Academy Discourses. Recent speakers have included Nobel Laureates, Venki Ramakrishnan, Amaryta Sen, William Campbell and Sir Paul Nurse. Other distinguished speakers were Mary McAleese, Catherine Day and Sir Stephen O’Rahilly.
The next discourse in the season takes place on Thursday 25 November at 6.00pm, featuring a talk on Academy Discourse: Confessions of a Disappointed Irish Unificationist from Paul Bew, MRIA.
