Trainee project showcase – Playground of politics: writing a brief history of the Oxford Union

Here is another of the presentations from Wednesday’s showcase.

It begins with a little history of the Union to give some of the context for presentation. Then you will find some slides about my project, writing a brief history of the Oxford Union to sell in the Library. Finally, for the library admirers among you, I spoke about, and included some pictures of the Old Library and its murals.

If you are reading this, will be working in Oxford in September, and fancy a spot of library tourism, do come along to the Explore visit, organised by Bodleian Libraries Staff Development, to see the murals and hear about the particular issues the library faces, on 20 September.

p.s. small landmark: wordpress informs me that this is the 100th post on the trainee blog – it says it is dandy!

  1. I very much appreciated the little Evelyn Waugh photo – didn’t realise he was a member!

  2. Ooh, well spotted! Apparently he wrote about debates in one of the student newspapers but I haven’t managed to find anything.
