Mansfield College, Oxford

To honour the memory and legacy of Jonathan Cooper, the Trust is supporting a series of annual lectures at Mansfield College, Oxford. Beginning in 2023 and over the course of the next ten years, this high-profile lecture series will engage both the wider academic community in Oxford and the public, with new research to help raise the profile of LGBTQ+ History. Jonathan Cooper was a tireless human rights campaigner, barrister and a board member of the Sigrid Rausing Trust – he was also a founder of the LGBTQI+ organisation, Human Dignity Trust.
