Oxford Listings

Dear all,

For new students, welcome to Oxford and the Oxford Listings, for old hacks, welcome back.

Once again this year the Oxford Listings will seek to distill the Late Antique and Byzantine seminars and events in Oxford into a single weekly email every Sunday. As ever please send additions to byzantine.society@gmail.com. This week take particular note of the OUBS Faculty-Student Coffee Morning on Thursday, which returns after its successful establishment last year. This is a great opportunity for students to meet the range of unofficial and official Byzantine-related talent we have in Oxford.

Best wishes for the term,

Matthew Kinloch

OUBS President
