Humanities Research Fair


Book now for the FREE Humanities Research Fair 27 Jan 2-5pm.

Discover the wealth and riches of research and library resources available in Oxford. Meet the experts and network with your peers. Network over a cup of tea.

The Fair is an excellent opportunity for Humanities postgraduate students to gain a wider perspective on the wealth and riches of research sources available for their field of study.

At the Fair you can learn about resources you may not yet have yet considered and meet the curators of collections who can guide you towards relevant material or useful finding tools.

Over 40 stalls will cover many areas: Special collections (archives & early printed books, maps, museums); Topical stalls (e.g. resources for English literature, Theology, History, Modern Languages, Biography); Geographical stalls (e.g. US studies, Latin American, Far & Near Eastern, European); General resources (e.g. Information skills, Open Access, Top 10 Tips from a Graduate)
