Engaging debate, showcasing research and raising awareness


Is a pioneering initiative designed to address major issues with wide relevance in a way that crosses academic disciplines and involves all members of the College community. Biennially a specific focus or theme is chosen and Girton's Fellows, students and staff are encouraged to adopt the theme.

In addition, GirtonTalks actively encourages informal debates, discussion and other activities, including across different subject areas. It also provides opportunities for the College to hear about the interests and work of our alumni and is a focus for our engagement with the local community.

Events are being planned around the current theme – look out for further details below, in emails and on social media.
