Jacquiline Creswell

Curating Contemporary Art in Cathedrals

Jacquiline Creswell is the Visual Arts Advisor at Salisbury Cathedral. She will discuss the role of art and of Cathedral art exhibitions: “Churches have found art very effective as a way to reach out and engage the wider community. It has the power to reveal hidden meaning and transform beliefs.”

Please join us in the Richard Eden Suite at 5.30pm for a drinks reception. Jacquiline’s talk will begin at 6 pm followed by a buffet dinner at 7.30 pm.

For Clare Hall members, please RSVP to artsociety@clarehall.cam.ac.uk

For non-members, please use our Eventbrite link.

Parisian Women and the Nazi Occupation. Uncovering their lives and their relationships

Anne Sebba

1 November 2018, 18.00 – 19.30

The Auditorium, Robinson College

Why have the images of French women, shaven-headed, punished for alleged collaboration, dominated notions of how French women responded to the German Occupation for the last 60 or so years? In the early 21st century, we now must have a more nuanced view of how the women of Paris, in particular, responded to the Nazi Occupation, and to look at the reasons why so many of them have refused to talk about their experiences. Now, as those who are still alive approach their 90s, Anne Sebba has been able to uncover a variety of stories about a range of Parisian women using what Le Figaro has described as La Methode Sebba.

Clare Hall will host a small book exhibition at this event, organised with the generous support of the University Library.

This event is sponsored by Sir Charles Chadwyck-Healey and convened by Annamaria Motrescu-Mayes.

The Republic of Korea and its efforts for a peaceful relationship with its neighbour, the People's Republic of Korea, has become of huge strategic interest in international politics.  This year, it will be just over 25 years since Kim Dae-Jung spent time at Clare Hall, a college in the University of Cambridge as a Visiting Fellow.  This period of seclusion and intense intellectual work helped him craft what became known as the Sunshine Policy, and ultimately lead to him receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2000.

We are marking this with a commemoration and reflection of Kim Dae-Jung and his legacy against the background of current peace endeavours, with a symposium chaired by Ambassador Ra Jong-Yil on the 13 November 2018: Reflections on the Sunshine Policy and its relevance today – 25 years after Kim Dae-Jung's stay at Clare Hall.  Besides Ambassador Ra, the panel includes Martin Uden, former Ambassador to the Republic of Korea; Jonathan Powell, CEO and founder of Inter Mediate; Christopher Green, Leiden University; and Tristan Webb, Kent University.

The symposium is kindly sponsored by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Baikbong Research Institute and is taking place at 5 pm at the Elton Bowring room, Clare College followed by a drinks reception at 6.30 pm at Clare Hall.  Both events are open to the public and pre-booking is essential.
