Insights into ‘City on the Hill’ book on the history of the University of Exeter, by Jeremy Black, Professor of History

An Alumni and supporters event
Date10 September 2018
Time10:30 to 11:45
PlaceUpper Lounge, Reed Hall, Streatham Dr, Exeter EX4 4QR

A wonderful opportunity to learn from Professor Jeremy Black who will share insights into his research into the University of Exeter, undertaken for his book ‘City on the Hill’ published as part of the celebrations during the University of Exeter’s Diamond Jubilee year.

In 1955 the former College of the South West was granted a royal charter and became the University of Exeter.  Its development over the subsequent six decades is the subject of this book…the history of an institution that is also a community, a focus of teaching and research set within a particular environment but also part of the wider world.

Alumni are welcome to come along to enjoy the opportunity to reminisce about their experience of University life.  This talk will have a particular emphasis on the era spanning the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s to coincide with the University welcoming a visiting group of alumni who studied during these years, although all alumni are very welcome to attend.
