Judith Buchanan appointed to Oxford HCP Advisory Council

Professor Judith Buchanan, Master of St Peter's College, is to be part of the University of Oxford's inaugural Advisory Council for its Humanities Cultural Programme (HCP).

Professor Buchanan, who is an expert on early modern literature and the study of film, will join nine other leading figures within the Humanities, including Deborah Borda, president and CEO of the New York Philharmonic, and Neil Mendoza, Provost of Oriel College, Oxford and the UK government’s Commissioner for Cultural Recovery and Renewal, as part of the Advisory Council, which will initially meet twice a year to guide and inform the HCP in its aim to become a globally leading university centre for art, culture and community engagement. 

The HCP is an active programme of public events and projects powered by research in the Humanities at Oxford. Working in collaboration with both local cultural partners and the world's leading performers, artists, film-makers and musicians, the HCP seeks to increase the social impact and understanding of humanities research and reaffirm its value to our common future. Engaging new audiences and participants of all ages, the HCP is a founding stone of the new Stephen A. Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities, due to open in the academic year 2024/25.

More information about the Advisory Council and the HCP itself is available on the website of The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities.
