A reminder that ​the society’s Trinity Term Debate will take place tomorrow evening​ on the topic of ‘Was Byzantium the middle ground between east and west? Ideas of state and community’ with Eduardo Manzano and Michael Angold. The debate starts at 8pm in the Saskatchewan Room but we hope to have a wine reception outside, weather permitting, before hand.​

​I apologise in the delay in the sending out of the Oxford Listings this week.
Best wishes,
Andrew
