IP at 40: In Conversation with Emily and Charlotte Guerry

by Alice Oates

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of International Programmes (IP) at Pembroke, we are doing a series of profiles in 2017 on former students and staff who were involved with IP and the effect this experience had on them or on Pembroke.

Our fifth interview is a double-bill with a difference; Emily Guerry joined us for the Spring Semester Programme (SSP) in 2006, and her sister Charlotte arrived to take part in the same programme this year! Both sisters talked to us about the benefits of learning in the Cambridge environment, both in terms of the opportunities for in-depth study, and the beautiful architecture of the college.

Emily taught in International Programmes during her PhD in Art History. She is now a lecturer in Gothic Art and Architecture at the University of Kent in Canterbury.
