'Nobler imaginings and mightier struggles': Octavia Hill and the remaking of British society (27–28 September 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 - 12:22pm
National Trust, the University of Oxford, and Octavia Housing

In September 2012 an interdisciplinary conference at Sutton House in London will mark the centenary of the death of Octavia Hill. Best known for her housing reform, Hill was also instrumental in founding such diverse present-day institutions as the National Trust, the Chartered Institute of Housing, the Army Cadet force, and Family Action (originally the Charity Organisation Society). In a political climate which once again emphasizes the kind of privately-financed social action that Hill applauded, and where the preservation of open space and the provision of homes are again contentious, a re-evaluation of her life and legacy seems particularly timely.
