Women’s Classical Committee UK 2017 Annual General Meeting: Diversity in Classics - 20/04/2017, Oxfo
The Annual General Meeting seeks to highlight current feminist and gender-informed research in classical studies, and to discuss issues facing women in Classics. Through a series of talks and discussions we will address the question of diversity in Classics, present new research, and report back on the activities of the WCC UK during its first year.
LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: Ioannou Centre For Classical and Byzantine Studies (Oxford, England)
ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Women’s Classical Committee UK

You may register as an in-person participant for the whole day, the morning only or the afternoon only. You may also register as an online participant who will take part in the discussions live through Twitter. In-person spaces are limited, so please sign up as soon as possible if you wish to attend. Registration as an online participant will be open up to the event itself. (In-person registration is free for paid-up members of the WCC UK, who have received instructions on how to access this ticket type over e-mail.) We are also reserving time during the day’s schedule for a series of short (five-minute) spotlight talks by delegates. Through this session, we hope to provide a chance for delegates to share projects, experiences or research connected to the WCC’s aims. We are particularly interested in talks that address the AGM’s theme of diversity in Classics; that highlight new, feminist, intersectional and gender-informed work in Classics, ancient history, classical reception or pedagogy (inside and outside the university sector); and that feature new work by postgraduate students and early-career researchers. If you would like more information or to volunteer to give one of these talks, please e-mail Carol Atack (carol.atack at st-hughs.ox.ac.uk). The deadline for expressing interest is 5pm on Friday 10th March. We are offering a limited number of £20 travel bursaries for attendees who are students or on low incomes. Please see the Eventbrite page for details of how to apply for these.
