Indigeneity Research Showcased at College's 125 Years Celebration

Posted on 22/11/2011

Royal Holloway marks 125 years of excellence in research

On Tuesday, November 8th, Royal Holloway hosted a celebratory dinner to mark the 125th Anniversary of the founding of Royal Holloway College, and 25 years since its merger with Bedford College.

Almost two hundred guests from the worlds of business, politics, health, the media,the arts, academia and the public and voluntary sectors we welcomed at the event, which included a guest speaker, alumna The Baroness Warwick of Undercliffe and the Principal, Professor Paul Layzell. 

Baroness Warwick spoke warmly of her times at Bedford College and reflected on the strength and diversity of Royal Holloway’s research and student experience.  

Professor Layzell focused on the scale of change we have faced in the past 125 weeks, which far outstrips anything in the 125 years that went before, and expressed his confidence in Royal Holloway’s ability to meet today’s challenges head on, and to continue to go from strength to strength.

Through the evening, guests were shown videos showcasing exciting research from various college Departments. One of the projects profiled was 'The Indigeneity in the Contemporary World: Performance, Politics, Belonging' (housed in the Drama Department's Centre for International Theatre and Performance Research) which is led by Professor Helen Gilbert.
