Talks and Lectures

The difference between a talk and a lecture is that talks are shorter and less pretentious, usually for the general public.

Lectures are usually given to a specialised audience.

I have a standard repertoire of talks described in the prospectus here [.doc].

Most of them have a physical counterpart as PowerPoint presentations, with written notes or a related essay.

Some have been recorded in video format and can be found on YouTube.
