    WINTER WILLIAMS LAW PRIZES 1996

    The Board of the Faculty of Law invites entry for the Prizes which
    will be awarded in 1996 on the basis of essays, of not more than
    5,000 words, submitted on one of the following subjects:

    1 `In the last decade English contract law has been
    less innovative.' Do you agree? How innovative should English
    contract law aim to be in the next decade?

    2 How well does the law of torts deal with
    interferences with the use and enjoyment of land?

    3 Is there or should there be a core content to
    the law of trusts, to which all trusts should be subject if they are
    to be treated as trusts?

    4 What principle or principles appear to govern
    the solution of those disputes over the family home which have, in
    the last two decades or so, been resolved by the application of rules
    of estoppel, resulting trusts and constructive trusts? Would there be
    any advantage in solving these disputes by means of a single branch
    of the law?

    5 Is it necessary for the judiciary to extend the
    scope of judicial review and to develop new grounds for
    intervention?

    The first prize is of £400, the second prize is of £200.

    Grants to a total of £200 may be made to unsuccessful candidates
    who have done meritorious work. The prizes will be awarded only if
    entries of sufficient merit are received.

    The essays must be sent to the Head Clerk, University Offices,
    Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, by 30 September 1996.
    There is no entry form, but each essay must be accompanied by: (i) a
    statement from the candidate's college that he or she is, on 30
    September 1996, an undergraduate member of the University who has not
    exceeded the tenth term from matriculation,and is reading for the
    Honour School of Jurisprudence; (ii) a declaration that the essay is
    entirely the candidate's own unaided work and that it has not been
    submitted to any other person for advice, assistance, or revision.

    ORS AWARDS SCHEME 1996

    The ORS Awards Scheme for Overseas Research Students, established by
    the Department for Education and administered by the Committee of
    Vice-Chancellors and Principals, provides awards for the partial
    remission of tuition fees to overseas postgraduate students

    criteria for the awards are outstanding merit and research potential;
    other factors, such as means, nationality, and proposed field will
    not be taken into account by the national ORS Committee. The value of
    each award is the difference between the 1996–7 university
    tuition fee for a UK/EU postgraduate student and the rate chargeable
    to an overseas postgraduate student for his/her particular course of
    study.

    Further information and application material for the 1996 ORS Scheme
    at the University may be obtained from the International Office,

    `3.9. Gender and colonialism

    Focusing on colonial empires in Africa and South Asia in the
    nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this paper examines aspects of
    the relationship between gender and colonialism. Topics include a
    study of the gender ideologies of colonial rulers and their impact on
    local populations; sexuality and empire; the relationship between
    gender, class, and race in specific colonial situations; the role of
    white women in the colonial world; the impact of colonial economic
    change on local gender divisions of labour and gender ideologies, and
    the importance of ideas about gender to the creation of colonial
    nationalisms.'

    5Ibid., p. 583, after l. 4 insert:


    `4.3. Problems in European Historical Demography 1560–1914

    The paper aims to provide an introduction, at an intermediate level,
    to issues in European historical demography over the period. The
    primary focus will be on English evidence, but this will be placed in
    the comparative context of western Europe and, where appropriate,
    Europe as a whole. Topics will include: sources and methods of
    historical demography, family reconstitution, aggregative analysis
    and back-projection techniques; patterns of marriage and household
    formation, `high-' and `low-pressure' demographic regimes; marital
    fertility, birth intervals and the concept of `natural fertility';
    temporal variations in mortality and the problem of `exogenous'
    mortality change; ecological influences on mortality and the problem
    of the `urban penalty'; long-term population growth and the concept
    of `demographic transition'; the secular decline of fertility and
    morality.'

    6Ibid., p. 584, after l. 31 insert:

    `5.6. Women and the Welfare state

    The course will draw on interdisciplinary literature to reach an
    understanding of women's relationship to welfare as clients and as
    providers during the twentieth century. We will begin with a
    consideration of feminist theories of the welfare state compared to
    some classical sociological and economic perspectives, followed by a
    discussion of new literature on women and the origins of welfare,
    which focuses on the issue of agency. Thereafter, the course will
    focus mainly on the period after the Second World War and mainly on
    British material, examining women's position in the labour market and
    the family and social policies in respect of women as workers and as
    mothers.'
