The 2014 ASNC Alumni Reunion Event
All alumni are invited to this year's reunion on Saturday, 27 September 2014 in the ASNC Common Room. Drinks will be served from 5-7pm and will be a chance to catch-up and reminisce with staff and students. At 6pm, there will be a short talk on the Department’s plans to hold a sequence of conferences marking the succession of millennial anniversaries of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic significance during 2014 – 2016. If you would like to attend, please contact Rebecca Lawes.
The 2013 event took place on 28 September, 2013. It was a chance to meet up with fellow-students and staff over a pre-dinner drink and see some friendly faces - all were welcome! We also invited some of our current graduates along so alumni could hear a little about the research within the Department and see what the next 'ASNC generation' looks like.
The 2012 event took place on
22 September 2012. Attendees enjoyed a chat over drinks and looked at recent photographs
featuring alumni that people had brought along. 'Memories of Old Awake', a video featuring ASNC alumna Dr Emily Lethbridge and her recent work in Iceland was also shown.
The 2011 event took place on 24 September 2011 and was another successful opportunity for people to catch up with each other and find out 'what's new' in ASNC.
Now fully established on the departmental calendar, the 2010 ASNC Alumni Reunion Event was held on Saturday 25th September, 2010, to coincide with the University's Alumni Weekend.
The 2009 event was held on Saturday 26th September for which the Department held an informal drinks reception and reunion for ASNCs from the early 1980s and 1990s as well as the very recent past. We also had music provided by Shem Jarrold (Pembroke, 2007). Thank you to all of you who were able to make the trip back to Cambridge to join us. We hope to see many of you again in the coming years.
The 2008 alumni event was held on Saturday 27th September, to coincide with the University Alumni weekend. The Department hosted an informal drinks reception to the accompaniment of ASNC-inspired/performed music by Hariet Earis (Trinity, 1998). There was also the chance to see some remarkable photographs of Scandinavia taken by James Appleton (Girton, 2004).
The inaugural ASNC alumni event took place on Saturday 22nd September 2007 in the Department. This was the first time many alumni had had the opportunity to see our new home and enjoy the ambience and the ‘ASNC terrace’.
