Women & Power: Redressing the Balance, a two-day conference, brings together researchers and heritage professionals to reflect on previous practice, explore the delivery of and response to events of 2018, and look forward to the future of representing women’s histories.
The conference will take place in Oxford on the 6th and 7th of March 2019. It is jointly convened by the University of Oxford and the National Trust and features papers from both organisations in addition to a range of other institutions and independent researchers who have submitted papers through an open call.
