The newly reestablished Trinity Hall Politics Society are delighted to invite you to join students and Fellows for a drinks reception and three-course dinner on Saturday 17 February. The dinner is open to anyone who read HSPS, History and Politics, or a related subject; those who work in politics, journalism, or an associated profession; as well as anyone with a special interest in politics.

Trinity Hall’s very own Dr Tristen Naylor, Professor of History and Politics at the University, former Deputy Director of the G20 Research Group, and Policy Analyst and Advisor to the Government of Canada, will give a speech during the dinner. 

Dr Tristen Naylor

Dr Tristen Naylor

Dr Tristen Naylor is an expert in international summits and diplomacy, with a focus on the G7 and G20. His most recent book, Social Closure and International Society, develops a theory to improve IR’s accounts of hierarchy, stratification, and status-seeking while analysing the history of summits since the 19th century. Dr Naylor’s current project examines the roles of ritual and performance in the reproduction of international order. He is the former Deputy Director of the G20 Research Group and, prior to his academic career, served as a Policy Analyst and Advisor to the Government of Canada. In 2008 he was awarded the Canadian Public Service Award of Excellence by the Clerk of the Privy Council and Secretary to the Cabinet in recognition of his work. He is currently a Staff Fellow in Politics at Trinity Hall, and University Assistant Professor of International Politics and History.
