Celebrating BRLSI's 200-Year Legacy

Posted in: Community Events, Local and civic engagement

As the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution (BRLSI) marks its remarkable 200-year milestone in 2024, the University of Bath is thrilled to join in the celebration of this venerable institution's rich legacy. The collaborative efforts between the University and BRLSI underscore a commitment to fostering intellectual curiosity and community engagement.

Our contributions to the BRLSI's celebrations begin in February with "Brilliantly Engineered," a city-wide festival of engineering. This initiative showcases innovation and talent from across the city, with the University's Team Bath electric racing car students actively participating. Members of the public, local school students and the region's leading engineering companies will be in attendance.

Another notable event is a Film Festival presentation of "Mafia Women," featuring Professor Felia Allum's groundbreaking research. This public event not only highlights academic excellence but also underscores a commitment to diverse and thought-provoking topics.

Looking ahead, the partnership extends to Bath Taps into Science in the autumn, an initiative that Professor Chris Budd has run in the city for many years, and which encourages scientific curiosity among the public, especially younger audiences. The collaboration also includes various talks and presentations, reinforcing the commitment to sharing knowledge and fostering a love for learning.

Beyond these specific events, the University of Bath is actively working with BRLSI to broaden its outreach, ensuring that the institution connects with younger and more diverse audiences. This forward-thinking approach aligns with both institutions' dedication to inclusivity and accessibility in education and intellectual exploration.

In celebrating BRLSI's bicentenary, the University of Bath is proud to be part of a collaborative effort that not only honours the institution's impressive history but also looks towards a future filled with innovation, diversity, and a shared passion for knowledge. Cheers to 200 years of fruitful collaboration and here's to many more in the future!
