Of interest to early career Classicists and others:
Women in the Humanities is an interdisciplinary programme which aims to explore how gender and sex play out in history, art, philosophy, music, language and literature, as well as the ethics and politics of gender identity and equality in the Humanities. It seeks to promote the opportunities Oxford offers to women working in the Humanities at all career stages, as well as promoting the study of women’s lives within the Humanities at the University.
Postdoctoral Writing Fellowship

The fellowship will be tenable for between 3 and 6 months from 1 October 2016. Funding may be used for travel expenses, living expenses and research activities that will enable the Fellow to publish their doctorate or aspects of their doctoral work. The Fellow will be a scholar whose work promises to significantly advance knowledge of women’s lives, experiences and/or representation. They will be mentored by an experienced academic in their field, and will be expected to be a regular participant in WiH activities.
