The Corpus Christi College Centre for the Study of Greek and Roman Antiquity

The Centre was set up in 1993 to provide a focus and umbrella organisation for the College's various postgraduate activities in classical research (the area of ‘classics' being very widely defined). Corpus, founded in 1517 partly to promote the newly revived study of Latin and Greek in Oxford, remains firmly committed to the study of the classical world in all its forms. Amongst Oxford colleges it has the largest proportions of undergraduates studying classical subjects, of permanent faculty members with classical interests, and of classical graduates. These last groups form the core of the Centre: all the College's Fellows and lecturers with classical interests are ex officio Senior Members, and all classical graduate students at Corpus are automatically Members; other categories include Visiting Members (short-term visiting graduates and academics) and Associate Members (classical scholars without other UK departmental affiliation). The Centre organises two series of seminars in Michaelmas and Hilary Terms each year (the Corpus Christi Classical Seminar, founded 1980). It also stages other conferences, one-off seminars and lectures (and social events!) from time to time.
