Opportunity profile: Oxford bags top female humanities scholars

The University of Oxford has launched a visiting fellowship for established scholars studying issues relating to women. The Women in the Humanities programme coordinator Naomi Pullin told Cristina Gallardo what she hopes the scheme will achieve.

How did the programme come about?

The Women in the Humanities Visiting Fellowship is part of the University of Oxford’s Women in the Humanities programme, established in 2013 to promote more ways to approach the issue of gender equality in academia. The fellowship’s focus is to connect female researchers in the humanities and it will also promote the study of women’s lives and identities, and representations of women in the humanities. Although the Women in the Humanities programme mainly supports female scholars at Oxford, the idea is that the fellowship will encourage collaboration between our researchers and those at other institutions.
