Event Details

Please join us for one of the highlights of our calendar, the Annual Lecture. This year, the lecture will be delivered by eminent alumnus of the University of Sydney, Dr. William Dinning. Within the historic walls of St. Edmund Hall, Dr. Dinning will offer his insights on the great mathematician and theologian, Blaise Pascal.

 

The Lecture will commence at 12 noon in the Doctoral Hall. The lecture will be followed by lunch in the Old Dining Hall.  All are welcome to attend the USUKAA AGM, which will run for 20 minutes from 11.30am. 

 

For those who wish to extend their stay in Oxford, we will also be offering a walking tour of Oxford after lunch; a chance to learn about the City of Spires and its spirit of learning. It is this very spirit of learning that is referenced in the motto of the University of Sydney, SIDERE MENS EADEM MUTATO (and there may well be a correspondence between the open book of Oxford University's own coat of arms and that which sits in the middle of the cross in the University of Sydney's).

 

In the evening, we will also be gathering informally in some of Oxford's historic pubs for convivial drinks. Details to follow. Perhaps we might find our way to The Turf Tavern, where former Australian PM Bob Hawke once set a Guiness World Record.

 

Alumni of the University of Sydney, guests and friends are all welcome. We hope that you can make it and look forward to meeting you.

 

Tours:  After lunch there will be a tour of St Edmunds.  For those wishing to see more of Oxford, a professional walking tour will depart at 3pm led by "Tours of Oxford".  This will be two hours long and will visit many of the interesting landmarks in Oxford.  There is nothing further to pay for this, and you can let us know on the day if you wish to join it.  If there are any questions please email: alumni.usukaa@sydney.edu.au
