To coincide with the 2017 University of Oxford Alumni Weekend, Pembroke will be hosting an alumni dinner as well as a 'State of the Nation' College briefing session on Saturday 16th of September 2017.

The format of the event will be as follows:

14:00 Check-in (accommodation will be on offer for those wishing to stay on the night of 15th and/or 16th)
14:30 - 15:30 'My Quest for Extra-Human Rationality' - academic lecture given by Prof. Alex Kacelnik, Fellow in Biological Sciences
Alex has spent the last 50 years trying to understand animals’ minds, and confesses to still be puzzled. He will share with us some of his findings and his favourite as yet unsolved problems. He accepts that humans are unique, but so, he says, are all other living species, each in their own way.
