John Bayley Celebration

A celebration of the Life of John Bayley was held on Monday, 9th November, in the Bernard Sunley Lecture Theatre at St Catherine’s.

Over 50 Fellows, colleagues and former students came together to share memories of the former English tutor at New College, who moved to St Catherine’s in 1974 as the first Warton Professor of English Literature.

As an academic, Bayley made his name as a literary critic and a specialist in Pushkin and Goethe. Former students remembered Bayley for instilling in them a lasting delight in literature as a way of engaging with the world.

You can still buy your copy of the 2016 Oxford Almanack!

It is only the second time in the Oxford Almanack's 340-year history that St Catz has been featured and this time it is portrayed in a beautiful painting by Cathy Read. The remainder of the sheet consists of a calendar for the year, which also includes information relevant to the university, as well as, for instance, sunrise and sunset times.
