Professor Keith Still will be presenting a lecture on crowd sizes and his work during the inauguration on Thursday, March 2 at 5.30pm, as part of the open lecture series celebrating the university’s year of celebration following its independent status.

The crowd size became a controversial discussion point of the president’s first week in office when his camp disputed claims that spectator numbers were vastly below those of Barack Obama’s inauguration.

Laura Locke course leader for BA (Hons) event and tourism management, said: “We are very proud that Professor Still has agreed to partner with the university and support the programmes offered, and we are so looking forward to his visit in March.”
