Fridays 4pm to 6pm | Online event (full series details)

Message* from Professor in Practice, Duncan Green: 

This year’s Cutting Edge Issues in Development Thinking and Practice series kicks off at the LSE this Friday – 1st October. After that it’s every Friday from 4-6pm UK time (except for reading week on 5th November, when we all have a lie down). So why not bunk off work a bit early and start your weekend with some great brainfood?

As last year, we are really benefitting from doing this online, rather than in person. That means it’s open to all, and persuading some of the most interesting development thinkers on the planet to speak on Zoom is a lot easier than forcing them to schlep down to an LSE lecture theatre on a cold, dark Friday afternoon.

If you’re busy or in a different time zone, don’t worry – this year every lecture can be streamed and watched back via YouTube, and will also be made into a podcast series.

James Putzel and I will be chairing (that’s our reward for organizing the series). After each lecture, we have some great discussants (see below), before we move on to Q&A with the audience.

That’s enough from me – just skim through these speakers and stick them in your diaries!
