Jubilee Celebrations

The Reverend Dr James Parkes formalised the creation of the Parkes Library and Parkes Centre in the 1950s, the Library was then transferred to the University of Southampton in 1964 and re-opened in conjunction with the Parkes Centre in 1965.

After fifty years of growth and development we think this anniversary is a wonderful opportunity to assess the contribution that the Parkes Institute has made locally, nationally and globally.

You will find information on this page about a series of events we are planning in Southampton, London and Cape Town that will celebrate the Institute's achievements and point to future directions.  This will culminate in a major international conference on Jewish/non-Jewish relations to be held at the University of Southampton in September 2015.
