Seen as a vital element of their preparation for Oxbridge interviews later this term, the eight speakers delivered a masterclass in academic extension and revealed a wide range of interests beyond the confines of the curriculum.
The title of each 'Viva' presentation below gives a flavor into the wide-ranging, diverse nature of the evening -
- Winston Luk – ‘Genetic Engineering and the effects of drugs on neurotransmitters.’
- Rhys Woodward – ‘Flaubert, Balzac and the Age of Literary Realism.’
- Milton Tai – ‘The Economic and Political Principles of Libertarianism : The Hong Kong Case Study.’
- Chris Beard – ‘Descartes Philosophy : The Evil Demon & Who Cares’
- Bee Cook – ‘The Paradox of Communication’
- Bertie Shepherd-Cross - 'Fascism, Slavery and White Supremacy: Why we need to color correct antiquity'
- Max Cheung – ‘Environmental Economics’
- Kira Ward – ‘Time Dilation’
Many congratulations to all speakers involved for their willingness to engage in their academic passions - good luck to all ahead of those forthcoming applications. Watch this space for video highlights of the evening's presentations!
