Mondays, 12.45-14.00 in weeks 2,4,6,8 in Seminar Room 10 in the new Library and Academic Centre at St Anne’s College. Fortnightly meetings, led by graduate students and early-career researchers. In Hilary Term 2018, the OCCT Discussion Group will again be structured as an experiment in comparative reading out of context. For further details please check on the OCCT website or email Karolina Watroba at karolina.watroba@merton.ox.ac.uk.

In Hilary Term 2018, the OCCT Discussion Group will again be structured as an experiment in comparative reading out of context. It's a fantastic opportunity for graduate students working on comparative projects to get a fresh perspective on the texts they study by getting other participants to respond to selected passages without the usual background (biographical information, historical context, etc.) that covertly informs our reading. Do get in touch if you'd like to get involved and host a session!

We will meet at lunchtime (12:45-2pm) on Mondays of even weeks (week 2: 22 January, week 4: 5 February, week 6: 19 February, week 8: 5 March) in Seminar Room 10 at St Anne’s College. No preparation will be needed. Free sandwich lunch, fruit and coffee will be provided. For further details please check on the OCCT website or email Karolina Watroba at karolina.watroba@merton.ox.ac.uk.
