Mark Whittow

28 December, 2017

The College has learnt with great sadness of the tragic death of Dr Mark Whittow in a road accident over Christmas. 

A distinguished scholar in Byzantine History, and a Fellow at Corpus Christi, Mark had a long-standing connection with Oriel and taught generations of Oriel historians. He served as the University's Senior Proctor in 2016-17 and the College announced in November that Mark would become Oriel’s next Provost in September 2018. Our thoughts are with Mark's family at this very sad time.
