Dear All

The Art Writing Writing Art research group at the University of Bristol are delighted to announce details for our next event, this coming Monday.

Madeleine Emerald Thiele on Pre-Raphaelite Art Writing

20th January 2014, 1pm, First Floor Seminar Room, Graduate School, 7 Woodland Road

The session will explore ideas around the impact of religion upon 19th century thinking. During this talk we will consider how the religious views of writers like John Ruskin and William Michael Rossetti contributed to the production of religious imagery, as seen in many Pre-Raphaelite works. One question which will endeavour to be explored and discussed during the session, is how we should approach the output of atheistic writers.

We warmly invite all post-graduate students, staff and AWWA supporters to attend.
