Women on the Verge. Transformations in Literature, Gender and Society. 16th...
Fri 16 June 2017, 09:00 – 18:00 BST
We are proud to announce Women on the Verge: Transformations in Literature, Gender and Society, the first of a planned series of one-day conferences aimed at PhD students and early career scholars from across the Humanities and beyond.
The conference aims to serve as an interdisciplinary forum for discussion, analysis and reflection on the concept of femininity and gender representations, which are socially, geographically and culturally embedded. Furthermore, it focuses on the re-appreciation of women as creative and professional figures within the literary environment and the cultural marketplace (artists, authors, publishers, editors, translators and so forth).
We welcome papers from, but not limited to, the fields of Literature, Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies, Media and Film Studies, History, Book History and Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Art History and Visual Culture.
