Magdalen is renowned for its history teaching and has the largest community of historians in Oxford. Macintyre is our History Society, named after the college’s former tutor, Angus Macintyre. We invite speakers and organise events related to history. In the past, we had guests ranging from the Magdalen alumnus George Osborne to leading experts in their respective fields like the archaeologist Vinzenz Brinkmann. Every talk or interview ends with free refreshments and the unique possibility for undergraduates, postgraduates and tutors to get to know each other and informally discuss historical topics together.
