From November 5-9, King’s takes its show on the road. We’re embarking on a lecture tour that brings us to a city near you.

You are invited to attend a short lecture on a fascinating topic, connect with professors and alumni, enjoy refreshments, and learn about some of Canada’s premier arts, science, and journalism programmes.

Dr. Neil Robertson, director of the Foundation Year Programme, and Prof. Tim Currie, director of the School of Journalism will present a joint lecture entitled “The Education of Odysseus: The Art of Storytelling from Ancient Greece to Contemporary Journalism.”

We are pleased to announce that we are offering on-the-spot admissions and will be waiving the $65 application fee at these events.
