The White Rose Resistance - New Perspectives Symposium

17 March 2020 to 18 March 2020
17-18 March 2020
The Queen's College and St Edmund Hall
Free, but registration is required

The symposium is convened by the White Rose Project in association with the Weiße Rose Stiftung Munich and The Queen’s College Translation Exchange. The White Rose (Die Weiße Rose) is not only a moving and compelling story in its own right, but also speaks more broadly to the power of the written word and the ways in which culture can inform political action. This symposium brings together speakers from a range of disciplines and backgrounds and explores new perspectives on the group and its legacy.

Attendance is free, thanks to a generous grant from The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH); however, registration is required (and early registration is recommended). Please see the full programme and register here:
