Every year since 1986, the University of Cambridge Darwin College has presented a public lecture series on various topics, always with an inter-disciplinary focus.
The 2011 Lecture series is on the topic of “Beauty” and includes talks by Biologists, Philosophers, Historians, and more. It’s geared towards a general audience and is a fascinating look at this largely ambiguous topic. You can check out the webseries online at the Lecture Website or subscribe for free via iTunes U.
