We are looking forward to watching St Hilda's team take part in the Christmas edition of our favourite academic quiz, hosted by Jeremy Paxman. The team was captained by Dr Val McDermid (English 1972) and included Dame Fiona Caldicott DBE (Physiology 1960), Adèle Geras (Modern Languages 1963) and Dr Daisy Dunn (Classics 2005). We are hoping to see them become Christmas University Challenge champions! The date on which the programme will be shown is yet to be confirmed, so watch this space.
Professor Sally Mapstone was installed as Vice Chancellor of the University of St Andrews on 30 November 2016. She is pictured here with our Alumna, her former student, and Chief Executive of Stonewall Ruth Hunt and with St Hilda's College Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy, Dr Anita Avramides. Ruth Hunt was nominated by Professor Mapstone to give the Congratulatory Address at her Installation Ceremony.
Come chase away those Christmas blues with us on Friday 6th January at the St Hildas College Media Network's Twelfth Night Drinks Party! We are delighted not only to be throwing this party at the London Review Bookshop in Bloomsbury but also to announce that Mary-Kay Wilmers will be talking to us about her extraordinary life in publishing, from rubbing shoulders with T.S.Eliot at 'Faber and Faber' to her founding of 'The London Review Of Books.'
