About this Event

To celebrate poetry at Wadham and the release of Prof O'Donoghue's latest book, Poetry: A Very Short Introduction, join us in the Lodgings for an evening of original poetry reading by some of Wadham's talented MCR and SCR poets.

We will begin with readings by Wadham Fellows Prof Bernard O'Donoghue and Dr Jane Griffiths. Prof Bernard O'Donoghue is an Emeritus Fellow of Wadham College, where he taught Medieval English and Modern Irish Poetry. He has published six collections of poetry, including Gunpowder, winner of the 1995 Whitbread Prize for Poetry, and Farmers Cross (2011) which was shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot prize. Dr Jane Griffiths works on the poetry and drama of the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. She has published five collections of poetry. Another Country: New & Selected Poems was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection in 2008, and Silent in Finisterre (2017) is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation.

We will also hear readings of poems by several members of the MCR, including Harry Mason (DPhil. Bio Engineering), Ann Ang (DPhil. English), Juliane Borchert (DPhil. Physics), Joana Perrone (DPhil. Area Studies), and Lizzie Merrill.

Wine, non-alcoholic beverages and cheese will be provided and we will aim to finish by 7, to allow time for anyone who plans to go to dinner afterwards to do so.

This event is open to all members of the MCR and SCR and brought to you by the college Research Associates. If you have any special access requirements, please email ahead of time to let me know.
