Applications are invited for the Carmen Blacker Research Fellowship tenable at Peterhouse for three years from Easter 2017 or as soon as practicable thereafter. The Fellowship has been made possible by the generous bequest of the distinguished Japanese scholar Carmen Blacker and the subject areas of the Fellowship reflect her own areas of academic interest:
Petreans who matriculated in the years 1971 to 1975 inclusive are warmly invited to attend the ‘Petrean Dinner’ on Saturday 23 September. Invitations and further details will be circulated in early summer to all members who matriculated in the years concerned. Dinner will be at 8.00 p.m., with pre-dinner drinks from 7.30 p.m.
On Sunday 17 September the College will once again be delighted to welcome Petreans with their children and/or grandchildren to a Party in the College. There will be a BBQ and a programme of children’s entertainment as well as refreshments more suited to the grown-ups. It will be an occasion for Petreans to bring their families to enjoy the College and its gardens in the company of friends. New for 2017; The Raptor Foundation will be joining us with birds of prey, for a display and flight demonstration in the Scholar’s Garden.
With this year's newsletter you will find a provisional programme for the annual Peterhouse Society Gathering at the College. Guests are welcome to invite a guest to attend the annual Dinner, although they must be over 18. The Gathering begins with lunch on Saturday and Petreans are welcome to arrive from 12 noon. Please see the programme for full details. Overnight accommodation is available on a first come first served basis, but please bear in mind that College rooms only offer basic single or twin accommodation and that the majority of the rooms will be in St Peter’s Terrace.
The spring London drinks evening will be held on Thursday 23 March from 6.30 p.m. onwards at the Oxford and Cambridge Club. Guest speaker to be confirmed. The event is free of charge, but for catering purposes we are asking that you RSVP online (booking opens January 2017) at or by contacting Holly Ashcroft.
On 11 March 2017, a dinner for all Petreans who work in accounting and finance will be held in College. Although we will endeavour to ensure all those working in these fields will be invited, our records are not always up to date in terms of careers. If you would like to receive an invitation, please contact Holly Ashcroft with the relevant details of your career so that we can update your record and we will add you to the list.
Some of you have been good enough to offer to speak or have taken part in our recent career evenings, which are held for the benefit of our current students. We are particularly interested in hearing from those who work in the arts, media, or for charities. If you or your firm would be interested in offering this great opportunity to our students, please contact Holly Ashcroft.
