Logo for Oxford Comparative Criticism and Translation programme

Are you interested in getting more involved in the comparative community here at Oxford? The OCCT Discussion Group is inviting DPhil students to convene and host the 2017 Trinity term Discussion Group. Interested DPhil students should submit a proposal for a four session Discussion Group to take place in Trinity 2017.

Please include a brief summary of the theme (200-250 words), as well as a preliminary reading list with readings clearly delineated for each of the four sessions. A successful proposal will adhere to the standards established in previous discussion groups, and comparative topics that are of interest to participants from broad range of disciplines and pedagogical backgrounds will receive priority. For examples of possible discussion group themes and formats, please look at our past topics and summaries athttp://www.occt.ox.ac.uk/discussion-group.

The Discussion Group meets biweekly, on Mondays from 12:45 to 2:00pm at St Anne’s college. Potential conveners must be able to commit to all four sessions. The successful candidate will be paired with an experienced convener to facilitate discussion. For further enquiries contact any of the current conveners: Karolina Watroba, Kate Costello, and Valeria Taddei.

The deadline for proposals is 17 February 2017. Successful applicants will be informed in Week 7 of Hilary term.
