About Me
I teach Classics at the University of Canterbury (Christchurch, New Zealand). I am an Australian and a graduate of Melbourne University and Cambridge University (PhD, 1998) and have been based at Canterbury for the last 20 years or so. I have held Visiting Fellowships at Cambridge University (Trinity, and Wolfson) and have an upcoming Fellowship at Oxford through a Canterbury-Oxford exchange program (mid Jan - mid April 2019). I am looking for accommodation in central Oxford for myself for 3 months during this period. Ideally I would like my wife (research consultant, Marita Broadstock) and two teenage children (15 and 18 years) to join me for the first week or so in early January before the Fellowship commences, if there was space available. We are also planning to spend a week or two in Berlin over Christmas before we arrive in the UK (from around 20th December), to see the wonderful antiquities there, and enjoy the Christmas markets of Germany at this time.
