"David Jones: Christian modernist?"
Oxford (UK), 10-13 September 2014.

David Jones's (1895-1974) rich career as visual artist, poet and critic yokes together two terms, 'Christian' and 'modernist', which are sometimes considered incompatible. This conference examines the paradoxes of a Catholic artist committed to 'making it new' through formal experiment and a large-scale theory of sign, sacrament and civilization. Jones's case demands an interdisciplinary approach drawing on theology, philosophy and history, as well as a wider rethinking of the critical vocabulary of Modernist Studies.
