Participants learn about the uncomfortable histories of unique spaces in the city and engage with global and contemporary debates.Uncomfortable Oxford was founded by two Oxford University students as an intellectually engaging alternative to the general tours of the city. As historians, we have researched and designed a tour which highlights difficult histories of the city and university - focusing on topics of power, imperialism, race and gender discrimination, the ethics of financial donations, and the politics of memorialisation.
