Feminism; Influence; Inheritance

The conference on 23rd March 2013 brought together postgraduates and academics to explore how the issues of feminism, influence and inheritance animate or problematize their work and practice in the field of literary study. It aimed to begin a discussion about the challenges and anxieties, but also the significant rewards of engaging with our substantial feminist inheritance as scholars working in English Studies today. During the conference we considered how contemporary research relates to the rich, complex and extensive history of feminist research in the discipline and explored how new directions in literary study might be informed by the work of the past. 

Marion Shaw - Emeritus Professor, Loughborough University - gave the keynote address  which was titled ‘Old Feminism, New Feminism’.
