Are you an A-Level student studying English Literature or Language, History, Government and Politics, History of Art, Sociology or Economics?
We would like to hear from you!
We are looking for 200-700 word blog posts giving your thoughts on the relationship between women, money and markets. You may wish to concentrate on the period 1750-1850 but we also welcome your reflections on recent events and current affairs - see, for example, the opening post reflecting on the Austen banknote and Brexit.
How do you think women are represented in farming, in industry and at work? You may have examples from literature (this could include, for example, Austen, Eliot or Hardy, as well as later works that you may be studying), as well as from art, business or the media. What kind of markets have either historically been or are available to women? What do you think are the most important questions and challenges facing women in the marketplace? You may also wish to explore your thoughts on Brexit and/or other recent political developments and their consequences for women in the media and in the marketplace. What do you think of the Austen banknote?
Based on the work submitted, we will pick up to 5 students to be student delegates at the conference, with the opportunity to discuss your ideas with the conference organisers and to join the conference for the full day and/or for the evening talk. We publish the writing on our blog and advertise the pieces at the conference.
This will be of particular interest to those considering studying Literature, History, Economic History or History of Art at university, but is open to all who would like to discuss these issues.
Please email Emma or Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org - we are happy to answer questions as well as receive blog posts. There is no deadline as we will accept blog posts by email at any time, including after the conference, but please submit your piece before April 1st 2017 if you wish to be considered for the chance to be a student delegate at the conference on May 11th 2017.
All students are also welcome to attend the conference (£15) and/or to attend the free evening lecture with Caroline Criado Perez.
