Wolfson College is honoured to host the Oxford Symposium in Sillicon Solar Cell Technology on 15 and 16 April.
Visiting Scholarship Scheme
OCLW invites applications for Visiting Scholars who would like to conduct their research while benefitting from the intellectual support of OCLW and Wolfson College.
These will be senior academics (normally those who have reached the equivalent of professor, associate professor or UK University Lecturer level). Applications for VS status must be supported by two Fellows of the College; this will be arranged by OCLW for prospective life-writing Visiting Scholars. Graduate students are not eligible. There is a maximum duration of one year in the first instance for a Visiting Scholarship.
We do not provide funding (or help in searching for funding) for accommodation, travel or living expenses. Elected Visiting Scholars will obtain membership of Wolfson Common Room (entitling the scholar to a University Card and use of the Bodleian Library; dining rights in hall; use of the college library and sports facilities; room hire and eligibility of most College committees). Visiting Scholars will benefit from the intellectual community of the College and University: they may join College clubs and societies (a charge may apply for some clubs), use all the College facilities, attend Guest Night dinners and bring guests to dine in Hall for lunch and dinner. They may also apply to the Accommodation Office for housing during their stay, although there is a great demand, and it may not be possible to meet scholars’ needs.
In addition, successful applicants will be Associate Scholars of the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing for the duration of their stay, and would participate in all its events during that time. Successful candidates will be invited to present a paper on their research, and we welcome any further suggestions for contributions to OCLW’s activities during their residency.

Lectures and Seminars27 - 28Apr AprThe Korrigan Consort Presents: Hunger & Judith TriumphsSaturday 27 April - 7:30pm to Sunday 28 April - 9:30pm
The Korrigan Consort is thrilled to present a spring double-bill, featuring Joanna Ward’s Hunger and Antonio Vivaldi’s Judith Triumphs.
Two tales, two women, two troubled souls. One, an artist struggling to form her identity as a creative, a woman, and a mother. One, a noblewoman with the weight of a nation on her shoulders, rebelling against the expectation of women to sacrifice. Both struggle under the thumb of patriarchs and patriarchy, with stories reaching across time.Lectures and Seminars30 - 30Apr AprImagining MadnessTuesday 30 April - 1:30pm to 5:30pm
How has madness been perceived and represented by composers, biographers, medical professionals, and people who have experienced it first-hand? How should we conceptualise madness as scholars? This interdisciplinary colloquium features various speakers, and aims to give researchers who are interested in this subject an opportunity to meet one another, hear about each other’s work, and to discuss the challenges of writing about experiences and perceptions of madness and mental illness.Lectures and Seminars30 - 30Apr AprAsian Treasure Traditions SeminarTuesday 30 April - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
