Universities Tests Act 1871: a panel discussion to celebrate the 150th anniversary

Chaired by Principal John Bowers QC, with guest speakers Professor Abigail Green, Professor of Modern European History and Tutorial Fellow at Brasenose, Revd Professor William Whyte, Professor of Social and Architectural History and Tutorial Fellow at St John's College, and (please note change of previously advertised speaker) Dr Frederick Smith, Early Career Fellow in Early Modern History at Balliol College.

The Universities Tests Act of 16th June 1871 finally removed the remaining religious restrictions on study or employment at Oxford. It thus started us on a bumpy road to becoming a modern global university, with students and staff of diverse faiths, sexualities, genders, ethnicities, nationalities and races.
