A cooking masterclass from your kitchen

Join our virtual cooking masterclass here.

With the height of summer upon us, we hope everyone’s staying suitably cool and hydrated (and socially distanced, of course). Next in our series of virtual Oxford10 events is a cooking masterclass led by none other than our Vice-President, Maggie Ewen!

How does it work? Before the event, we’ll share the recipes on our website (see below), and you’ll get all the listed ingredients prior to the event. 

On the day itself, we’ll cook the meal together and see how similar or different the end results are! 

For this episode of ‘Masterchef Ox10’, we’ll be having a delicious summer salad to start, followed by baked salmon, and finally no-bake cookies to top the meal off with dessert. 

Do join us on the 9th of July – register here!

Talk: Exponential Technologies and Values – A Tale of Chickens and Eggs – 14 Jul 2020

A talk by Dr. Lennart Brand on Exponential Technologies and Values – A Tale of Chickens and Eggs. Tue, 14 Jul 2020, 18:00 BST

Brief
Are the premises from which we approach the subject of exponential technological development still appropriate, or are we moving into a completely new dimension that also requires new moral concepts? The Liberal Arts are a useful means of doing this – provided that they discuss values not as a starting point but as a possible outcome of the debate. In other words, provided that they facilitate academic debate in an objective and open manner.
