The 2013 ASNC Alumni Reunion Event

ASNC Alumni were invited to a reunion drinks event on Saturday 28 September 2013 in the ASNC Common Room, Faculty of English building. 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,

Information on the forthcoming 2014 event will be posted here in due course.


Previous Years


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’.
