In light of the rapidly changing situation regarding COVID-19, Hertford College has taken the decision to postpone John Donne Lecture 2020. We understand that this will be a disappointment to those who were planning on attending, but the health and wellbeing of those associated with the college is of the utmost importance.
We will continue to update the website and social media pages if the situation changes. We hope to provide an online alternative to the lecture and information regarding this will be released in due course.
We are delighted to announce that Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell will be speaking at this year’s John Donne Lecture. Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell is an astrophysicist, best known for her discovery of pulsars. She is a role model for young students and female scientists, being awarded a CBE for services to astronomy in 1999, followed by a DBE in 2007. She has also been featured on BBC Four’s Beautiful Minds, and BBC Two’s Horizon.
Tickets are now available to reserve for free on Eventbrite. Please note that the John Donne Lecture is a popular event, and tickets do go quickly. Make sure that you book your place early to avoid disappointment.
