The School of Theoretical Physics Seminars

The School of Theoretical Physics runs regular technical seminars, Statutory Public Lectures and the annual O’Raifeartaigh Lecture:


Journal Club – STP weekly journal club meetings.

Regular Seminars – Specialist seminars covering all topics of interest in The School of Theoretical Physics broadly understood.

Statutory Lectures – Éamon de Valera was an ardent devotee of the public lecture as a form of intellectual entertainment, and it was his firm desire that the Institute which he was founding should provide a regular programme of public lectures on specialist topics. The School of Theoretical Physics continues this tradition today in the form of the Statutory Publics Lectures.

The O’Raifeartaigh Lecture – The O’Raifeartaigh Lecture is held annually in honour of Lochlainn O’Raifeartaigh (1933 – 2000), who throughout his time as a Senior Professor in The School of Theoretical Physic made many and varied seminal contributions to fundamental physics.
