New College Reads To You

Tina Biswas Reads To You

The scintillating novelist, Tina Biswas, grew up in North Yorkshire, read PPE (1997–2000) at New College, Oxford, and now lives in London.  She has written three critically acclaimed novels, and is currently at work on her fourth.

For #NewCollegeReadsToYou, she reads from her most recent novel, The Antagonists, which appeared last year with Fingerprint! Publishing.  A powerful, satirical novel set in West Bengal, The Antagonists is a story concerning Anil Thakur, also a University of Oxford PPE graduate—though there the similarities with Tina Biswas end—who returns to his ancestral home in Kolkata . . .

Multi-million pound plan for a new quad

The new buildings will include 108 student rooms on its Savile Road site, with a new entrance created on Mansfield Road.

This is a genuinely exciting plan, creating a stunning piece of architecture, and will for the first time enable us to house all undergraduates who wish to live in College accommodation.

New College Choir - Apart/Together

Young Oxford singers from the Choir of New College, Oxford, have joined up with production company, Positive Note, to produce a poignant call for attention, as the pandemic threatens the future of choral music in Britain.
