  • Borders

    Wolfson Explores

    This year’s Wolfson Explores theme aims to stimulate another rich, productive dialogue across interdisciplinary and cultural borders. So it’s appropriate that our 2021 theme is: BORDERS. We look forward to seeing creative interpretations across a wide range of fields, from the arts to the sciences, from the theoretical to the practical, from macroscopic to microscopic – and perhaps testing the borders between them!

    The Community

    Wolfson is a lively and welcoming place to live, with an engaged student community and a wide-ranging programme of events from live concerts to academic lectures to weekly welfare tea – with cake. Our Porters are the friendliest in Cambridge and our Howler comedy nights are legendary. We host visiting academics from all over the world and – with no High Table and social spaces shared by all – you will be stimulated culturally, socially and intellectually.
