Home of Lost Causes and Forsaken Beliefs? Understanding Oxford University Through its History

No-one in their right mind would create, from scratch, a university on the seemingly unworkable Oxford model. Yet Oxford’s achievements are undeniable and it remains one of our pre-eminent universities. The explanation of this paradox lies in its 800-year history. This talk will attempt to disentangle myth from reality and to offer an entertaining yet balanced view of this ancient and controversial institution.

Join Emeritus Fellow, Chris Day for this free fascinating talk on the history of Oxford.

Refreshments from 2.45pm, talk to start at 3pm.
