Oxford Minds - Oxford Social Science Lectures (Alumni)

Oxford is built on people, and the way they engage with pressing global issues within and across disciplines. People matter more than ever. This new series will convene the great minds of Oxford and beyond to discuss the issues that matter to our graduate students. It aims to provide all our graduates with an educational experience that transcends disciplinary boundaries. Serving as a graduate enrichment programme during extraordinary times, Oxford Minds is based upon three eight-week pillars: themes, theory and methods. The series will unfold on a fortnightly cycle. Four times per terms, a globally recognised speaker will give a public lecture on a specific topic. In each subsequent week, this will be followed by both an inter-disciplinary panel discussion and small, interactive discussion groups jointly facilitated by Oxford doctoral students enrolled in a new teaching mentorship programme. Our overarching goal is to create an interdisciplinary space in which we can collectively rethink social science for a changing world.
