    2020 Colin Ford Lecture

    2020 Colin Ford Lecture

    Professor Larry Schaaf delivers the 2020 Colin Ford Lecture, providing a fascinating insight into his work on The William Henry Fox Talbot Catalogue Raisonne. There are approximately 25,000 Fox Talbot prints known worldwide, these range from crude experiments through to highly accomplished works of art. For more than four decades Professor Schaaf has been examining and compiling information on Talbot images worldwide. Beginning in 2014, with the backing of the William T Hillman Foundation, the Bodleian Libraries began converting these private databases into a public resource. So far, images and data of more than 16,000 images and data have been freely made available online, allowing researchers to pursue their own questions and draw their own conclusions.

    Defying Hitler: The White Rose Resistance Group

    Defying Hitler: The White Rose Resistance Group

    Dr Alexandra Lloyd, Lecturer in German, Magdalen College and St Edmund Hall, University of Oxford, gives a talk on the White Rose Resistance Group. In 1943 five students and a professor at the University of Munich were arrested, tried, and executed. They were members of The White Rose (Die Weiße Rose), a clandestine group that wrote and distributed pamphlets calling on the Germans to resist Hitler. The pamphlets are fascinating texts, drawing on a range of philosophical ideas and influences. They urge readers to open their eyes to the atrocities being committed in the name of the regime, denounce the persecution of European Jews, and call for an end to the war. This talk introduces the White Rose group and examines the way they used the written word to inspire resistance.
