The 2018 centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which granted the vote to many women in the UK, yields an ideal opportunity for sustained critical reflection on women's suffrage. This conference seeks to explore the artistic activities nurtured within the movement, their range and legacy, as well as the relationships between politics and art. In striving for an inclusive, transnational reach, it will at the same time seek to move beyond traditional emphases on white middle-class feminism and explore the intersections between the regional, national, and global contexts for women's suffrage with specific respect to the arts.
While proposals addressing any aspects of women's suffrage will be welcomed, this conference will focus upon three strands:
1. Women's suffrage in/and the arts
2. Women's suffrage in Surrey and the surrounds
3. Transnational networks and flows of texts in relation to women's suffrage
20-minute papers are invited on any aspect of these strands, including but not limited to:
Abstracts of not more than 300 words should be e-mailed by 26 January 2018 to: suffragecentennial -at- surrey.ac.uk.
