Virtual get-together for Johnians in the USA

We are pleased to announce that we will host a virtual event for our alumni based in the USA on Saturday 13 March 2021 at 12pm (Eastern) via Zoom. This online get-together will be a great opportunity to catch-up with the community in the USA and to revisit the history of the courts and the Chapel of the College with the Fellow Borderer, Professor Patrick Boyde (1953).

Professor Boyde will be delivering a talk entitled ‘A walk through the courts and Chapel of St John’s: a historical and architectural journey through time’. The talk will be followed by a Q&A and networking.

We are very grateful to Honorary Fellow Marc Feigen (1983) for organising this event for fellow Johnians in the USA.

Invited speaker:

Patrick Boyde (1953)

Professor Boyde specialises in medieval and Renaissance literature and art with special reference to Dante, as well as rhetoric, scholasticism, Michelangelo, narrative painting and sculpture. Professor Boyde is the author of: Dante’s Lyric Poetry (with K. Foster) (Oxford, 1967); Dante’s Style in his Lyric Poetry (CUP, 1971); Dante Philomythes and Philosopher: Man in the Cosmos (CUP, 1981); and Perception and Passion in Dante’s Comedy (CUP, 1993). He is the editor of (and contributor to): Lettura del Fiore (with Z. Baranski) (Ravenna, 1993); Dante e la scienza (with V. Russo) (Ravenna, 1995); The Fiore in Context (with Z. Baranski) (Notre Dame, 1997); and Human Vices and Human Worth in Dante’s Comedy (CUP, 2000).

Make the most of virtual events

Find a quiet, private space

It’s important to find a quiet space to listen to the talk in, so that you don’t disrupt others while your microphone is on.

Always mute your microphone if you’re not speaking

This ensures that you enter the talk quietly and that any distracting background noises are inaudible to the speaker and other participants. To ‘mute’ yourself, click the ‘Mute’ button (a microphone symbol). A red slash will appear over the microphone icon, indicating that your audio is now off.
