From July 2016 to September 2017 Bath celebrates its 50th academic year, having received grant of its Royal Charter in 1966. Dr Steve Wharton, Senior Lecturer in French and Communication, reflects on fifty years of past achievements at the institution and contemplates future challenges. Working at Bath for over half of the University’s chartered lifetime, the lecture traces Dr Wharton’s personal view of the (pre-)history of the University to the present, and considers what the future might hold.

No Booking Required. Just turn up on day.
Listed as a linked event to the Edge Arts platform The Next 50 Years Of Knowledge. A year-long consideration of the discoveries, innovations and ideas our knowledge economy could generate between 2016 and 2066, and look at cogent impacts in health, ecology, learning, culture and international standards of living. To picture such futures, the Edge galleries, foyer and website will become sites of collective understanding on such matters, marking the University of Bath’s 50th Anniversary.
