A couple weeks ago The Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship announced a new series of lectures that will be given at BYU in honor of Hugh Nibley, on the 100th anniversary of his birth:
The Laura F. Willes Center for Book of Mormon Studies and Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies, in conjunction with Religious Education and the Harold B. Lee library, will host a weekly lecture series on Thursday evenings during Winter semester of 2010. More information on this event will be posted soon.

Will the lectures be broadcast on BYU-TV and added to their downloadable files? This kind of programming deserves more time than reruns of old BYU basketball games.
I wish they were, but my guess is no. The only lectures that BYU-TV seems to record and broadcast is Education Week. But details are lacking right now about them, so it is hard to tell just how big the lectures will be. Since they are weekly, I’m guessing it will be a small event. Even if they are not recorded and broadcast by BYU-TV, they will likely be recorded somehow, perhaps by the Maxwell Institute, and made available some other way. At least I hope they are.
