The David Hume lecture is an important date in the calendar of the David Hume Institute, and we are delighted that the 2018 David Hume Lecture will be given by Professor Peter Mathieson, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Edinburgh.
Peter Mathieson read Medicine at the London Hospital Medical College and was awarded a PhD from the University of Cambridge. Peter was the foundation Professor of Renal Medicine at the University of Bristol, and was also Director of Research & Development for the North Bristol NHS Trust and elected President of the Renal Association. In 2008 he was appointed Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Bristol. Peter was President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hong Kong from 2014 to 2018.
In his lecture, Peter will speak about his move from Hong Kong to Scotland and reflect on policy and politics in both places.
The event will begin at 6.00pm and will be followed by a drinks reception at 7.30pm. Entrance is free.
This event is kindly supported by the Faculty of Advocates.
