Governing Body

The Governing Body is Wolfson’s governing and policy-making body.

The Governing Body members act as fiduciaries to ensure that the College's academic and administrative leadership are guided by sound policies and practices, with adequate resources, to further Wolfson's mission. The members are attentive to balancing the needs of today's fellows, students, alumni, and staff with those of future generations.

The Governing Body consists of the President of the college, who acts as chair, the Ordinary Fellows, the Professorial Fellows, the Senior Research Fellows and the Extraordinary Fellows, together with six individuals being Supernumerary Fellows, Research Fellows, Junior Research Fellows and Students.

Beyond the Picture: Calligraphy and the Arts of the Book in Sultanate India
Friday 20 September - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

A lecture by Eloïse Brac de la Perrière. Numerous fields of investigation await the attention of specialists of Sultanate India. In particular, the study of illustrated manuscripts offers many perspectives: the iconography, the text, and the book itself, including its materials and their assemblage. The calligraphy from this period has scarcely been studied, despite its marked peculiarities. Calligraphy also provides a bridge between the artistic, intellectual and spiritual fields.
