Information and Contact Details

The Oxford Byzantine Society is a graduate student run organisation which provides support and information for graduate students of Late Antique and Byzantine Studies at Oxford University. It also provides opportunities for graduate students to present their work to their peers from institutions across the globe and acts as a hub for the sharing of information about job opportunities, studentships, conferences and seminars as well as publications and resources. Members of the society in Oxford can also expect to meet for drinks, dinners and trips.

We operate two mailing lists. The Byzness contains useful information about scholarly opportunities in the world of Byzantine and Late Antique studies, as broadly defined as possible. The Oxford Listings are sent out during term-time, and provide information about upcoming Byzantine-themed seminars, lectures, and reading groups around Oxford. If you would like to join either mailing list, please visit their linked Google Group pages and select “Join this group”.

Further information on the Society’s activities for the academic year 2020-21, as well as useful resources for LABS freshers can be found here.
