Dr Oliver Cox is Heritage Engagement Fellow at the University of Oxford and Co-Lead of the Oxford University Heritage Network. He leads a team that develops mutually beneficial research partnerships with the UK and international arts and heritage sectors.

His research interests include the social, cultural and political position of the British country house from the eighteenth century to the present day. He is particularly interested in broadening the range of academic disciplines and approaches that use the country house both as a source of archival material and as a site for knowledge exchange and public history.
