Given the following:
- I am doing as much as possible to avoid air travel, due to the carbon emissions associated.
- If I were going to fly, it would be (a) to deal with some kind of emergency or possibly (b) for an extended visit to a previously unseen part of the world.
- You only get one chance to graduate at Oxford, either in person or in absentia.
- There is no particular urgency in formally graduating.
Should I apply to have my name read in my absence and receive my diploma in the mail?
