A page for our alumni, students, staff, and fans from around the world!
Homerton has one of the most unusual and fascinating histories of all the Cambridge Colleges. Its first premises were acquired in London in 1768 – making 2018 the 250th anniversary of Homerton’s foundation – although its origins go back to the late seventeenth century. In that time Homerton has educated alumni of considerable influence; including prominent dissenting thinkers, educationalists, politicians, and missionary explorers. We have always had strong ties to public service as well as academia.
With around 600 undergraduates, 800 graduates, and 90 Fellows, it is now the largest College in terms of student numbers in Cambridge.

Cambridge History of Art and Architecture Graduate Seminar SeriesDistance: 1.0 miTourist Information Graduate Centre, 4a Trumpington Street Cambridge,
Graduate Research Seminar: 'Art & Travel'.
Organisers: Julien Domercq & Tom Young
The ‘cultural’ or ‘visual’ turn in imperial history and the now ubiquitous influence of post-colonial theory across the humanities reveals a substantial scholarly interest in the cultural histories of globalisation. Whilst somewhat nebulous notions of ‘hybridity’ and ‘cultural negotiation’ have become common parlance in this scholarship, this seminar series invites speakers to discuss the theme of ‘travel’ – an issue of longstanding interest for art historians concerned with explaining stylistic and cultural exchange – and in doing so centre their discussion on the quantifiable movement of specific individuals, objects and ideas. We welcome papers on topics across historical periods and geographic regions which seek to explore the experience and methods of travelling artists and patrons, their frequent role in pioneering scientific, geographic, and ethnographic knowledge, and the crucial way their artistic output shaped perceptions and understandings of different cultures. We also hope that speakers will explore the various ‘social lives’ and travels of visual and material objects, alongside the ideas and technologies mobilised by these geographic trajectories.
