News Announcement — 16 April 2020
Dear Students/Friends of the Faculty of Astrological Studies,
After due consideration of the public health concerns and potential repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with great regret that the Council of the Faculty of Astrological Studies has taken the necessary decision to cancel Summer School, which was due to be held from 21st – 28th August at Exeter College, Oxford.
However, in order to maintain the connectivity of the unique community spirit that Summer School engenders, we will be offering an alternative event online, The Summer Gathering, which will take place over the weekend of 21st-23rd August.
This event will not attempt to replicate the Summer School programme. Instead, it will be an invitation to those who have already enrolled this year to gather together with those who attended last year, to participate in listening to a collection of lectures, delivered live, by guest speakers and some of our Faculty tutors. Please note that, due to technical constraints, the number of attendees will be limited. However it is hoped to make available to our students one or two recorded lectures from the event.
We anticipate that next year it will be business as usual for our regular Summer School, and we hope that you can join us in Oxford in 2021. In the meantime, we wish you and all the people around you good health and positive spirit in this challenging time.
Best wishes from the Faculty Council:
- Cat Cox, President
- Frances Clynes, Vice President
- Penny de Abreu, Council Secretary
- Lindsay Gladstone, Council Member
- Deborah Morgan, Council Member
- Liz Rooke, Council Member
- Mónica Teixeira, Council Member
- Dragana Van de moortel-Ilić, Council Member
