The University of Virginia is proud to host the Thirty-First Annual British Women Writers Conference, from May 25 to 27, 2023. This year, our theme is Liberties. We encourage participants to reflect on the affordances and limits of this construct in terms of women’s writing of the long eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

During the conference, we hope to have convivial and stimulating discussions about how we read, research, and teach women’s writing in its various literary-historical contexts and with an eye to the urgencies of the present. Highlights will include:

• three exciting keynotes,

• a plenary roundtable,

• a plenary on bibliographical method,

• a gallery exhibition,

• and a series of workshops for graduate students and early-career academics that utilize UVA’s institutional strengths in archival studies, digital humanities, and more.
