MOVING, TEACHING, INSPIRING: The National Trust & University of Oxford in the 21st Century

A Lecture Series

Over the past three years the Humanities Division at Oxford has developed an exciting relationship with the National Trust, culminating in the Trusted Source Knowledge Transfer Partnership.

Celebrating our collaboration, this interdisciplinary lecture series will explore and interrogate the many challenges and opportunities facing the higher education and heritage sectors in the 21st century, and highlight the many points of connection between our two institutions from a number of perspectives; from caring for collections and landscapes, to gaining support through brand and marketing.

Open to Oxford University (staff, students and researchers) and National Trust staff only.

The lecture is FREE but spaces are limited – please email Alice Purkiss to reserve.
