Organised in collaboration with Dr Catherine Redford, this one-day interdisciplinary conference will bring together academics from various disciplines including English, History, Theology, History of Art, and Music to reassess the numerous responses to the idea of apocalypse produced during the ‘long’ eighteenth century. A plenary lecture will be given by Professor Fiona Stafford (Professor of English Language and Literature, University of Oxford). Following the conference, a showcase of musical and literary performances will take place at St George’s Crypt, Oxford Castle.
The conference runs from 9:30-18:30 at the Radcliffe Humanities Building and the showcase runs from 18:15-18:45 at St George's Crypt, Oxford Castle.
