Wolfson Explores Borders

Wolfson Explores ✱BORDERS

Last year, our first Wolfson annual theme, Wolfson Explores |Transformation| formed the focus for an exciting programme of events and activities for the whole College community. For 2020 we have a new theme to spark a whole new range of intellectual exploration.

Wolfson Explores Borders

This year’s theme aims to stimulate another rich, productive dialogue across interdisciplinary and cultural borders, soo it’s appropriate that our 2020 theme is: Wolfson Explores ✱BORDERS.

Again, we are inviting a thoroughly open-ended exploration of the theme. 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! An exciting programme of lectures, exhibitions, performances and discussions is already taking shape – but the door is open to further ideas and suggestions. If you would like to suggest an event, get in touch with our Event Coordinator.

Take a look at the events listings below to see how we are exploring Wolfson Explores ✱BORDERS today.
