Getting Involved

Anybody who has a research idea that agrees with our methodological vision can become a Project Host. The life cycle of a typical Early Text Cultures project is as follows:

  1. The Project Host gets in touch with the Secretary. After initial discussion, a description of a new project is created outlining the project goals, as well as the Project Host's personal interests and expectations. The call for participation is distributed among the relevant communities in Oxford and beyond.

  2. Potential contributors respond with brief statements of interest within two or three weeks after the distribution of the call.

  3. Over several weeks to several months, the Project Host collaborates with the participants towards the desired outcomes.

  4. If the aim of collaboration is a public event, the organisers provide assistance with publicity.
