2023 marks the 80th anniversary of the trials and executions of the core members of the Weiße Rose resistance circle. The Oxford White Rose Project was launched in 2018 and works to bring the story of the White Rose to English-speaking audiences through research, translation, and public engagement. It currently works closely with the Weiße Rose Stiftung e.V. in Munich and the award-winning vocal ensemble SANSARA.
The White Rose Project is looking for enthusiastic graduate students at the University of Oxford to join its committee for 2022-2023. Committee members’ responsibilities will include supervising undergraduate members of the annual translation project (details here: http://whiteroseproject.seh.ox.ac.uk/?p=3443), co-organising commemorative events on 18 and/or 19 February 2023, and assisting with the social media storytelling project ‘The White Rose in Real Time’ (17-27 February 2023). This is a voluntary role, but one that provides good experience and would be ideal for any graduate students interested in public engagement with research.
Applications should be submitted using the form here https://forms.office.com/r/MraK99k0v5 by 23 September 2022, including a brief outline (max. 100 words) of why you would like to be involved in the project. Applicants will be notified by 30 September. For more information, please contact Dr Alexandra Lloyd (email@example.com), and/or see the project’s website: http://whiteroseproject.seh.ox.ac.uk.
