Getting Involved in CMTC Activities

There are various ways to get involved with the Centre. If you are in or around Oxford, please come to any of our activities and talk to any of our Board Members. We are always happy to welcome new colleagues and provide an opportunity to present their research. If you are elsewhere in the world, do join us online. Since the pandemic, all our activities are hybrid events.

Getting Involved in CMTC Activities


The Centre is currently looking for a Research Student Board Member. This is an excellent opportunity for young scholars working on manuscript and epigraphy of any region of the pre-modern world. The person appointed to this position will contribute to the activities of the Centre with one’s own research, design innovative creative activities for scholars of manuscripts and epigraphy, initiate small and large-scale university-wide and international research collaborations.

We believe that this position provides a chance to amplify the voices of young scholars in the community of researchers of pre-modern texts in Oxford and help to connect scholars working on premodern textual cultures at different departments in Oxford. If you are interested in this position, please contact Dirk Meyer to discuss the time of an informal interview.
