Dear MEMSLib community,
We have come across a fantastic opportunity for postgraduate students. We thought this announcement deserved a blogpost.
On the 21st March 2022, the Legacy of Oxford Palaeographers symposium will be taking place at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
This symposium will consider the contributions of several Oxford scholars to the study of palaeography. An international range of speakers will consider the legacy of E. A. Lowe, N. R. Ker, M. B. Parkes and A. C. de la Mare. Because of the ongoing health situation and to encourage discussion in the room, the number of attendees has to be limited, though the event will also be relayed online. We are now inviting applications for financial support from doctoral students to cover their travel and registration costs in attending the event in person. To apply, please write to Dr Colleen Curran at colleen[.]curran[@]ell[.]ox[.]ac[.]uk, outlining:
your reasons to want to attend
whether your doctorate is funded (preference will be given to those who cannot cover costs from other sources)
the costs you expect to incur
It will be a condition of any award that the successful applicant writes a short (up to 1,000 word) report on the event with the intention that it is posted online.
The deadline for applications in Wednesday 2nd March 2022.
General registration for the event will follow, with a cost of £30 (including refreshments and lunch).
