Pre-Raphaelite Conference in Oxford, September 2013

Pre-Raphaelitism: Past, Present and Future
13–14 September 2013, Ashmolean Museum and St John’s College, Oxford
Keynote speakers
◾Dr Alison Smith (Tate Britain)
◾Professor Isobel Armstrong (Birkbeck)
Context and aims
In the wake of recent major exhibitions and publications such as Tate Britain’s Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde and The Cambridge Companion to Pre-Raphaelitism, this two-day conference will present new and innovative approaches to the study of Pre-Raphaelitism by bringing together established academics, museum curators and research students. This conference also seeks to examine Pre-Raphaelitism as a bridge between Romanticism and Aestheticism, and to engage with current critical work regarding its relationship to Modernism in literature.
