Whilst we are all social distancing this page and our Twitter (@mansfieldaccess) will be used to share digital resources from Mansfield tutors and our colleagues in other colleges or departments to help students explore their subject at home and find out more about studying at Oxford.
Mansfield Isolation Conversation
We have started a series of articles, linked by the common theme of social isolation, to give you an introduction to our subjects and the tutors who teach them.
The conversation so far:
Our English Literature tutors contributed articles on Medieval anchoresses, Oscar Wilde's experience of forced solitary confinement, Daniel Defoe's Journal of the Plague Year, Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Fears in Solitude and Thomas Nashe as 'plague's prisoner'.
Our Physics & Materials tutors have contributed pieces on the magnetic properties of isolated atoms, Solitary Neutrinos and the socialising qubits in quantum computing.
