The Intersectionalising Oxford Society invites you to their inaugural event:
St Hugh’s Women: Negotiating Gender, Class and Education
Wednesday 22 February 17:00-18:00
Mordan Hall, St Hugh’s College
With the support of the St Hugh’s MCR, we are pleased to offer light refreshments to all attendees.
This first event will bring together academics, students and alumni to reflect on St Hugh’s history. In a moderated panel-style conversation with Jane Robinson, a social historian and writer, Florence Smith, a St Hugh’s DPhil student in History, and St Hugh’s alumna, Sam Tolley (Zoology, 1987), this discussion will explore:
• The foundation of St Hugh’s College and establishment of its values
• How experiences of gender and class have shaped students’ college experiences and academic lives
• The presences and absences within the College’s history
• The fervent debates within St Hugh’s surrounding the transition from single sex to co-education
Tickets are free of charge, but please consider a small donation to the College’s Discretionary Fund. Guests are welcome.
Who are Intersectionalising Oxford?
Intersectionalising Oxford is a series of events that aim to spotlight the experiences and histories of people in Oxford who have been marginalised in dominant narratives, and whose identity intersections have uniquely shaped their experiences, as well as the University and its colleges. As Intersectionalising Oxford was established by St Hugh’s students, the first event will concentrate on the College’s history. However, future events will further explore the experiences and impacts of gender, race, identity, sexuality, class and disability in the past and present of the wider University of Oxford.
