You are warmly invited to attend our Open Day on Thursday, 10 March, from 4-8pm.
This event will showcase the School’s vast array of resources, including courses, training programmes, libraries, archives, and digital tools. A panel discussion on applying for and funding a research degree in the humanities will be of special interest to prospective postgraduate students at both the master’s and PhD levels.
Tours of Senate House will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the history and architectural features of this special building.
Our commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death kicks off with a special spoken-word performance by Bards without Borders, a printmaking demonstration, a sneak peek of Senate House Library’s new exhibition ‘Shakespeare: Metamorphosis’, and a talk by Dr Nick Barratt, the library's associate director for collections and engagement.
