The College celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Middle Common Room (MCR, the body of postgraduate students) earlier this year, and some of the talks from the day are now available online, on the St Edmund Hall YouTube channel.

The podcasts cover a wide range of topics, and include contributions from alumni, current postgraduate students and Fellows.

They include a session of reflections from MCR presidents from six different decades, full of humorous anecdotes but also serving to highlight some fascinating similarities and differences across time. Also available is a video of author and broadcaster Linda Yueh’s thought-provoking talk on ‘China’s Growth: the Making of an Economic Superpower’. Linda is a Fellow at St Edmund Hall, as well as an alumna.

Other talks give insights into some of the varied research areas of current Hall postgraduates, from Shakespeare to a ground-breaking technique to diagnose rheumatic heart disease using a mobile phone.
