Festival of Research and Impact

29th June

Join us for a day of discussions, talks and celebration of all things Pembroke: our research, our people, our impact, our treasures, and our food! 

With over 50 participants including Fellows, students, former Pembroke academics and alumni, themes for the day span Innovations in Health, Learning from Language, Addressing Global Challenges and AI and the Digital Era. 

Speakers already confirmed include: Professor Sir Chris Whitty (Chief Medical Officer for England), Dr Elisabeth Kendall (Mistress Girton College Cambridge and Middle East commentator), Professor Ingmar Posner (co-founder of Oxa autonomous vehicle firm and machine learning specialist), Marianna Spring (BBC’s Disinformation Correspondent), Professor Kevin Talbot (Head of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Neuroscience), Patience Agbabi (renowned poet and performer) and Professor Amy Dickman (Director of Oxford’s Wildlife Conservation Unit).  Alongside five minute pitches from students across the disciplines there will be something for everyone.

Our fringe programme will feature an expert-led tour of the College gardens, behind-the-scenes visits to the wine cellar and College archives, an exhibition of our Pembroke 400 Characters, and reflections on our history. 

After a world premiere performance of a Pembroke 400 commission by composer Tarik O’Regan, the evening programme will include a Pembroke feast like no other, 17th Century music and dance in honour of our foundation year and a spectacular light show. 

We look forward to an exciting day celebrating 400 years of scholarship, global impact and community.
