Just a short note to let you know that RECSO’s end of term gathering will be at the Royal Oak pub, on Woodstock road, on the 10th March, at 5.30. Please join us for some long eighteenth-century interdisciplinary community chat, and to find out more about our upcoming events, and even to get involved in them. The Facebook event is accessible here: https://www.facebook.com/events/987219734688104/
Indeed, RECSO is recruiting in advance for the 2016-17 academic year. For those who don’t know RECSO is a Network within The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities: http://www.torch.ox.ac.uk/recso. This Network provides a physical meeting space for RECSO’s growing body of members to exchange ideas, initiate discussions, and develop understandings about the long eighteenth century from an interdisciplinary outlook. Each term we run a series of events in the Radcliffe Humanities Building as well as around Oxford, both self-directed and also in collaboration with external partners.
Oxford-based graduates and ECRs are in particular encouraged to take part. As the only graduate-led TORCH Network, we offer our active committee members unparalleled opportunites to develop a wide range of recognised skills: leading collaborative research, team management, strategic planning, fund allocation, as well as conference organisation, judging panels, chairing sessions, blogging, networking, and outreach. Our Network committee consists of a graduate coordinator and selected “Representatives” from each of the humanities disciplines, who also publish news on the RECSO Blog (www.recsoxford.org/news
). We are currently looking for Representatives from subjects such as English Literature and Language, Modern Languages, History, History of Art, Classics, Oriental Studies, Philosophy, Politics, and Theology, as well as roles involving greater responsibility. For further particulars, and details of the application process, please contact our current Director, Emily Knight (firstname.lastname@example.org
