Book release: Ark of Civilization. Refugee Scholars and Oxford University, 1930-1945

15-03-2017 by Robyn Mason

This book is about the importance of Oxford as a shelter, a meeting point, and a centre of thought in the arts and humanities. Oxford from the mid-1930s onwards became a place where ideas about art, culture, music, and history could be rescued, developed, and disseminated freely. It explores how the meeting of minds of the refugee scholars, who fled the Nazi regime and Germany to make Oxford their home, had a profound and lasting impact on the development of British culture.
