Women Writers and Visual Culture
12th January, 2007, English Faculty, Oxford

Over the past few years, there have been significant and ground-breaking attempts to assess the visual strategies that have shaped the political, social, and literary designs of women poets, novelists, illustrators, translators, dramatists, artists and actresses, to give just a few examples. Studies have drawn upon a wide range of media including painting, print, textiles, advertising, architecture, sculpture, stage, screen, cyberspace and beyond.

DURRELL SCHOOL OF CORFU
SEMINAR:

'THE WRITER'S REPUTATION: GENDER, TIME, GEOGRAPHY'

Corfu, Greece, 3-8 June 2007
www.durrell-school-corfu.org

The Durrell School of Corfu will host an international seminar on 'The
Writer's Reputation: Gender, Time, Geography' at its Library and Study
Centre, 3-8 June 2007.

The reputation of a writer is affected by many factors. For example, it is
common for a writer's reputation to suffer a decline in public interest and
appreciation after his/her death. Such a reputation may be enhanced in later
years by the renewal of critical interest.
