University of Oxford is pleased to announce a two-day conference on ‘Women and the Canon’ to be held at Christ Church (University of Oxford) on 22-23 January 2016.
“This conference seeks to problematize received notions of canonicity, and therefore of artistic and intellectual authority, by approaching them through their relationship to gender. The Oxford English Dictionary defines the canon as ‘the list of works considered to be permanently established as being of the highest quality’. We are seeking to hold an interdisciplinary debate in which ‘work’ includes all forms of artistic and intellectual endeavour.”
