2023 Oxford Symposium in SBFC
August 6-11, Brasenose College, Oxford

Held at Brasenose College in the heart of Oxford University, this week-long residential, international, interdisciplinary symposium brings together the "invisible college" of experts in SBFC.

Oxford from the Air

The stunning circular building on this video is the Radcliffe Camera, the reading room of Oxford University's Bodleian library. The college to the immediate right is Brasenose College. The history of Brasenose College stretches back to 1509, when the college was founded.  Its name is believed to derive from the name of a brass or bronze knocker that adorned the hall's door.
