This spring Oxford’s English Faculty will be hosting a British Poetry of World War One Spring School.
The School is open to (and aimed at) members of the public, and particularly at those who have read some WW1 poetry but are now seeking a deeper critical appreciation. It will bring together world-leading experts in the topic, each invited to give an introductory lecture guiding the attendees to further avenues of study. Speakers will be encouraged to put together reading lists and follow-up exercises for students to do after each lecture on their own.
Speakers confirmed so far include: Adrian Barlow, Meg Crane, Guy Cuthbertson, Gerald Dawe, Simon Featherstone, Philip Lancaster, Stuart Lee, Jean Liddiard, Alisa Miller, Charles Mundye, Jane Potter, Mark Rawlinson, Jon Stallworthy.
