Mastering Oxbridge, Professor Robert Lethbridge, former Master of Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge will share with us the role of the Master in changing times giving us all an intimate view of the position.

A stimulating topic exploring what that role entails in modern Cambridge and how it is changing with the current increase of    non-academic Heads of House.  Most former students would be    hard-pressed to define that role even during their own College  careers!


Professor Lethbridge was Master of Fitzwilliam from 2005 – 2013, and Provost of the Gates Cambridge Trust from 2010 – 2013.

Professor Lethbridge was educated at the University of Kent at Canterbury (B.A., 1969), McMaster University (M.A., 1970) and St John’s College, Cambridge (Ph.D., 1975). His first academic post was as Leathersellers’ Teaching Fellow in French at Fitzwilliam College. He was Senior Tutor for the decade 1982-92. In 1994, he was appointed to the Chair of French Language and Literature at Royal Holloway, University of London, where he was successively Head of Department, Dean of the Graduate School and Vice-Principal. He has been a Life Fellow of Fitzwilliam since 1994. Before his return to the College, he was Director of the British Institute in Paris, now renamed as the University of London Institute in Paris. He has held Visiting Professorships at the University of California at Santa Barbara and at the University of Melbourne.

He is Emeritus Professor of French Language and Literature in the University of London. His current research and postgraduate teaching is now in association with Cambridge’s Department of French, where he was a University Lecturer until 1994 and is now Honorary Professor. His work is focused on late nineteenth-century France and, in particular, the relationship between literature and the visual arts in that period. He was made Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Palmes Académiques in 2013 for services to French culture and scholarship.  He has written several books.
