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.
