Somerville at Home Series: Season 2

Our ‘Somerville at Home’ series returns this autumn for another programme celebrating the best of Somerville with free events, videos, livestreams and more.

Somerville at Home is back! From September through to Christmas, we will once again be broadcasting the best of Somerville in the form of convivial chats, hard-hitting talks and far-reaching panel discussions.

Highlights of this term include a conversation between the actor Simon Russell Beale and Shakespearean scholar (and Somervillian) Emma Smith, looking at the changing dynamic between performers and academic students of Shakespeare over the centuries. We are also hosting conversations between our Principal, Jan Royall, and the broadcaster and journalist Joan Bakewell, as well as a series of events to commemorate Black History Month in October.

The archive of events will be updated here on a rolling basis, below this season’s term card.
