Event description
Learn about the 'uncomfortable' side of Oxford's literary heritage and overlooked authors on our Uncomfortable Literature Tour!

About this event

This walking tour explores a different aspect of Oxford's heritage of letters. Walking through the streets that have inspired numerous authors, we will examine the tensions between the traditional stories of the city and its diverse realities. Through the lens of narrative, this tour fosters conversations about mental health, repatriation, access, reputation, and the intersection of science and literature.

Uncomfortable Oxford takes a unique approach to the walking tour format - both fun and thoughtful, we encourage analysis and discussion about uncomfortable subjects within the city.

The tour is run by students from the University of Oxford and lasts for 1.5hrs. We will walk no more than two miles, but please be aware that cobble stones and uneven pavement may restrict the accessibility of this event.
