Ways to Donate

The support of our alumni and friends is very important to the College. It is a key part of our strategy to increase the funding available to our students, and to develop the best possible academic and pastoral environment for their study.

The Mission of the Development and Alumni Relations office is to expand financial support for graduate students, post doctoral fellows and the wider research community at Wolfson College.  Oxford undergraduates have told us they come to Wolfson for their graduate degrees because we do so much more for them than other colleges.

Our core objective is to achieve greater participation in the College’s events and activities and to expand resources to support members’ needs.

Thank you for your continuing commitment and ongoing generosity. All gifts to the College, large or small, make an important and positive contribution to the future of Wolfson.

Tennyson, Celebrity and Portraiture
Wednesday 25 October -
5:30pm to 7:00pm

This lecture will explore how publishers became responsible for promoting authors through portraiture in the mid-Victorian period. In particular it will focus on Edward Moxon and his role in expanding the readership of both William Wordsworth and Alfred Tennyson. While portraits of Wordsworth were relatively scarce, Tennyson was surrounded by sculptors, painters and photographers, which led to a new and disturbing experience of literary celebrity that had a major impact on his career.
