Univ in the Master’s Garden: Looking to the future
Saturday, 18 July 2020
All members of Univ are warmly invited to join us for a virtual event at which Univ academics will look to the future post-COVID-19 to tackle some of the challenges facing Univ, Oxford and the wider world.
It will be the last Univ event for Sir Ivor Crewe as Master of Univ, as he retires this year after twelve distinguished years in the role.
Please note this event is on the date of the now postponed Farewell Weekend that was originally planned.
The speakers are:
Dr Andrew Bell (1993, History), Senior Tutor
Professor Gideon Henderson, Senior Research Fellow in Geology and Chief Scientific Adviser at the UK Government Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)
Professor Karen O’Brien (1983, English), Professorial Fellow and Head of the Humanities Division at Oxford
Professor Ngaire Woods, Senior Research Fellow and Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government
Professor Naj Rahman (1994, Medicine), Supernumerary Fellow and Clinical Tutor in Medicine, Professor of Respiratory Medicine and Director of the Oxford Respiratory Trials Unit
Dr Alexander Sturgis (1982, History), Director of the Ashmolean Museum
Professor Peter Jezzard, Vice Master, Professorial Fellow and Herbert Dunhill Professor of Neuroimaging, will host the event.
Sir Ivor will provide a College update and chair the panel.
An invitation and details of how to join this virtual event will be emailed soon.
NB Celebratory events to thank Sir Ivor and Lady Crewe will be held in College on 24 and 25 July 2021. Further details will be mailed to all members later this year.
