Massey Lectures

The Massey Lectures are a prestigious annual event in Canada for which a noted scholar gives a series of lectures on a matter of import. The event is sponsored by the University of Toronto's Massey College. Until 2002 the lectures were also held at the University of Toronto. In that year, however, the lectures were made into a national tour with each of the five lectures occurring in a different Canadian city. The lectures are broadcast each year on the CBC Radio One show Ideas. The lectures are also almost always published in book form. Many of the lectures are also available as audio transcripts on cassettes or CDs that can be purchased through the CBC.
