2018 Week 3 Course 1

Colleges of Oxford


Julian Munby


Week 3

15 - 21 July 2018

The course explores the historic colleges and buildings of the University and city in the context of the origins of the town and growth of the University, ranging from the early medieval period to the 21st century. We shall look at the changing architectural styles of the buildings (churches, houses, colleges and institutions) in the context of the college gardens and the surrounding countryside. Following the chronology from medieval origins through to the modern period, the course will consist of illustrated talks with walks around historic buildings and streets of Oxford. On the last morning there will be a Victorian walk followed by an afternoon excursion to see modern colleges and views of the ‘dreaming spires’ from the Oxford countryside.
