Women and Education

Mar 16 - Mar 20, 2014


CALL FOR PAPERS

Submission/Abstracts due by January 30th

The Oxford Round Table will hold our 16th Annual Conference on Women and Education during the dates of March 16 – March 20, 2014 at Brasenose College in the University of Oxford, Oxford, England. Brasenose College is one of the thirty-eight colleges that form the University of Oxford and was founded in 1509.

You are invited and encouraged to make a presentation and to provide a paper on a relevant aspect of the topic, however, your participation as a member of the Round Table is not contingent thereon. Those not presenting papers will be placed on a discussion panel. Papers presented at the Round Table may be subsequently submitted for publication in the Forum, a journal of the Oxford Round Table. Papers considered for publication in the Forum are evaluated by peer reviewers as to technical and substantive quality and for potential to make a significant contribution to new knowledge in the field. Papers and presentations regarding the following areas are of particular interest to the conference. However, these suggested areas of research and writing are not meant to be limitations and the conference programme is open to all substantive areas of formal and informal research in education.

Members of the Oxford Round Table have access to an array of academic, cultural and social resources, including the Oxford Union Debating Society, colleges and halls of Oxford dating back to 1204, museums, theatres, bookstores, college chapels, river boating, literary pubs, political clubs and may, on recommendation, become official readers of the venerable Bodleian Library of the University, founded by Duke Humphrey in 1440 and refounded by Sir Thomas Bodley in 1602. A free afternoon and evening will be available on Tuesday for independent travel to London (one hour south of Oxford), Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Cambridge or many of the other cultural sights in England.

This Round Table is to be held at Brasenose College in the University of Oxford. As you may know, the University of Oxford is a confederation of thirty-eight (38) colleges of which Brasenose College is one. The colleges, themselves, are not degree granting or programmatic units of the University.  The University is an academic umbrella over all the colleges. The Round Table is, thus, not an academic programme conducted by the umbrella University. Brasenose College is the venue, the situs, the location of the Round Table. The colleges, themselves, in their private corporate capacity, traditionally host an array of academic conferences assisted by Conference Oxford.  The Round Table is one such conference. Brasenose College was selected as the location for the meeting because of its reputation, its location in the heart of Oxford, and because of its congenial working relationship with the members of the Oxford Round Table Programme Committee and Advisory Board.

Registration for this program is now open. To register, please visit the Registration Page.
For any other questions or concerns, please email coordinator@oxfordroundtable.co.uk.
