    Next steps? Mixed use, walkable cities

    Healthy Cities - Next steps? Mixed use, walkable cities ‘Next steps? Mixed use, walkable cities’ will be a stimulating debate and discussion on how approaches to planning and development can influence health and wellbeing in communities. The panel of speakers will each provide a five-minute provocative pitch to deliver their perspective on the importance (or otherwise) of walkable, mixed-use urban neighbourhoods.
    This is the first of a series of public seminars on the theme of ‘Healthy Cities’, launched as part of the new Global Centre on Healthcare and Urbanisation at Kellogg. The Centre has been established to promote opportunities for students, researchers, practitioners, and members of the public to engage with the pressing global issues of healthcare and urbanisation.

    Europe, Migration and Cities

    Europe, Migration and Cities

    Convened by: Kellogg Urban Knowledge Exchange. A multidisciplinary seminar, as part of the Kellogg Urban Knowledge Exchange series in association with Maison Française Oxford. What opportunities and challenges lie ahead for migrants, settlers and cities in Europe?

    Debates, arguments and shifting boundaries have generated a new landscape for migration and mobility, particularly across Europe in recent years. We have asked leading voices from all sides of the current European contexts to share their views on the opportunities and challenges ahead for a changing Europe, and fluctuating global circumstances, at public debate.
    Chaired by Sarah Spencer, COMPAS Director of Strategy and Senior Fellow, University of Oxford, with Phoebe Clay, Institute for Public Policy Research and Michael Keith, Centre Director, COMPAS, University of Oxford

    Anne McLaren Lecture 2019

    Anne McLaren Lecture 2019, “Can reformed communication save patients from harm?" This year’s Anne McLaren Lecture, “Can reformed communication save patients from harm?”, was delivered by Professor Marie Lindquist, Director of the Uppsala Monitoring Centre, an independent, non-profit foundation and centre for international scientific research, based in Sweden. UMC is the World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre for International Drug Monitoring.
    The OIBC Anne McLaren Lecture is held in conjunction with Kellogg College and the Trustees of the Oxford International Biomedical Centre. Dr Anne McLaren, DBE, Hon DSc, FRS (1927-2007) was a Trustee of the Oxford International Biomedical Centre. Her distinction as an experimental scientist in the field of mammalian embryology was matched by her concern for the ethical and legal consequences of in vivo fertilisation (IVF) and other clinical advances in human embryology. She is commemorated in Anne McLaren House at Kellogg College.

    The Origins of Enigma Codebreaking at Bletchley Park

    The Origins of Enigma Codebreaking at Bletchley Park

    Sir Dermot Turing will talk about the origins of Enigma codebreaking at Bletchley Park, the Bombe machine and how it worked. In 1939, six weeks before the outbreak of World War 2, the British codebreakers knew next to nothing about the German military Enigma machine. How was it that, by mid-autumn, they had already designed the Bombe machine which would win the codebreaking war?

    Join us in the build up to our Bletchley Park Week series of events (3rd – 7th March 2019), for this fascinating talk by Sir Dermot Turing, author and nephew of the Bletchley Park cryptanalyst Alan Turing.
