The Research Clusters epitomize the interdisciplinary, egalitarian community that can be found at Wolfson. The Clusters, the first of which was founded in 2010, offer spaces for members working in related areas of research in different disciplines to collaborate, debate issues, and discuss mutual interests.
Cluster members organize events from small discussion groups up to international conferences, and all members at whatever stage in their careers are encouraged to be involved. Some Clusters offer grants, others support workshop proposals, and a number of studentships are also sponsored. Follow the links below to find out more.
We organise events, offer grants, and provide further opportunities for researchers to explore ancient civilisations from all around the globe.
We focus on work across a variety of disciplines in which the web is the platform, and where sharing of ideas and methodologies could bring mutual benefit.
We aim to make research on issues of contemporary interest and importance accessible to a wide audience.
