WOMEN WRITING ACROSS CULTURES: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE
An international symposium at St Hilda’s College, University of Oxford
Friday 26 September to Sunday 28 September 2014
This symposium aims to foster dialogue among researchers and practitioners dealing with women’s writing in a variety of fields:
- transnational writing and writing across cultures;
- writing across academic disciplines, across the humanities and social sciences, across the arts and sciences;
- encounters between the critical and the creative, the academic and the popular, art and life, history and life-writing, orality and literacy, collective and individual authorship, analysant and analyst;
- crossing temporal boundaries: women’s writing of the past impacting on the present, imagining futures for women’s writing.
Organized by the ‘What is Women’s Writing?’ Interdisciplinary Research Group, supported and funded by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH).
Speakers include short story writer Kate Clanchy
