Seth Thévoz joins the team as Junior Research Fellow

We are delighted to announce that Seth Thévoz has just commenced a four-month appointment as a Junior Research Fellow at the Rhodes Project.  A PhD candidate at Warwick University, Seth specializes in nineteenth-century history. During the tenure of his award, he will pursue the following questions: How has the Oxford learning environment changed as a result of the presence of women Rhodes Scholars?  Did the first wave of women Rhodes Scholars affect the most by way of cultural change, or has that level of transformation to Oxford’s cultural and intellectual life been maintained in the decades since?  Based primarily in Oxford, his research will consider materials held at the Bodleian and other University of Oxford archives as well as the transcribed interviews collected by the Rhodes Project.
