Publishing for Social Change

Thursday 12th March 2009

Fighting with words against inequality, injustice, poverty and war.

Taking place:

The Buckley Building, Oxford Brookes University, Headington, Oxford OX3 0BP.

Publishing is not just an industry. It's very largely how a democracy works (when it works!), so it's far too important to be left entirely to markets, press-barons and governments. Humanity's greatest battles - against slavery, for the vote, against poverty, oppression, exploitation and war - are fought increasingly, and often won or lost, in the publishing media.

Women in Publishing

Thursday 10 May 2007

The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies is holding a one-day conference on the theme of 'Women in Publishing' at Oxford Brookes University.

Taking place:

The Buckley Building

The Glass Ceiling - is it still in evidence to women in the publishing industry? 

This conference focuses on the role and position of women within the contemporary publishing industry.  The UK publishing industry is populated by a predominantly female workforce.  But, several decades after the foundation of feminist publishers such as Virago, have women achieved equality both as employees and as writers?  Is there still a glass-ceiling effect operating at board-room level, or has the appointment in the 1990s and 2000s of women to managerial positions changed publishing culture for good?  How do women construct their publishing career paths, and what are the opportunities and strengths of women in publishing?
