Society for Educational Studies Annual Colloquium: 'Writers and Their Education' - Oriel College, University of Oxford
'Writers and Their Education' brings together scholarly and literary-professional examination of conceptions, perceptions and representations of education in the life and works of writers across all genres of literature (biography, cirticism, drama, fiction, poetry) and academic writing in the arts, humanities and social sciences. The colloquium will take a fresh look at the influences of education, broadly conceived. The audience will be a mixed one of inter-disciplinary academics and professional writers.
