Women and the Canon

A new conference starts to emerge – see this site for the call for papers for Women and the Canon, to be held at Christ Church, Oxford on 22-23 January 2016.

Gender & Authority

Christ Church, University of Oxford – 22-23 January 2016

Welcome to the website of ‘Women and the Canon’, an interdisciplinary conference which will seek to problematize received notions of canonicity, and therefore of artistic and intellectual authority, by approaching them through their relationship to gender.

We are seeking to hold an interdisciplinary debate in which ‘work’ includes all forms of artistic and intellectual endeavour, thus opening the discussion to researchers in the social sciences and humanities broadly conceived.

Our full call for papers is available here (or by clicking on the relevant tab above) and we are particularly keen to encourage early career researchers and graduate students to propose presentations.
