MOVING, TEACHING, INSPIRING: The National Trust and University of Oxford in the 21st Century

The Humanities Division at Oxford has developed an exciting relationship with the National Trust, culminating in the Trusted Source Knowledge Transfer Partnership.


Celebrating our collaboration, this interdisciplinary lecture series explores and interrogates the many challenges and opportunities facing the higher education and heritage sectors in the 21st century, and highlights the many points of connection between our two institutions from a number of perspectives; from caring for collections and landscapes, to gaining support through brand and marketing.
