"In conversation with…"
We are running a series of events throughout the year where an alumnus/alumna/staff member from one generation interviews an alumnus/alumna/staff member from another. These events will be informal, and attendees will be invited to bring questions, observations and any artefacts that are willing to share with others and with us - old exam papers, dissertations, scrolls, badges - whatever! Do let us know if you’d like to come - email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our first event was on Wednesday 29th November 2017, 1-4pm - find out more here.
Our next event will be ....
