It is January 2018, and although the winter chill is still strongly felt, the days are getting longer and we have filled them with a huge variety of academic seminars and events to see us through to Spring.
Upcoming events this term include our regular academic seminar series in Economics and Social History, Political Science, and Sociology. These will interest graduate students across the Social Sciences, as they address topics ranging from “America’s immigration policy fiasco” to “The role of insurers in governing criminal markets”.
Our series on Media and Politics, which is co-hosted with the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, brings a range of non-academic speakers to Oxford, including Ed Williams (CEO, Edelman UK and Ireland) who will speak on “Trust, power and the crisis of media,” and Nevine Mabro the deputy editor of Channel 4 News, who will talk about filmmaking and journalism in war zones.
We have also just announced a three special events in our “Future of the Left” seminar series, convened by Nuffield Visiting Fellows Jon Cruddas and Stewart Wood. The series offers informal interviews and conversations with leading political figures, and this term brings Members of Parliament Alison McGovern, Liz Kendall and Rachel Reeves to Nuffield College for a discussion with any University of Oxford members who would like to register to attend.
For our alumni, we are offering New Year’s drinks with the Warden, which kicks off a new series of “Nuffield in the City” Alumni events hosted by the Nuffield Foundation
We look forward to seeing many of you at these and other events at Nuffield College over the course of Hilary Term.
