Download the Call for Papers

The Anthony Powell Society is pleased to announce a conference, dedicated to the work, life and times of Anthony Dymoke Powell, to be held at Merton College, Oxford on 31 August to 2 September 2018.

The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for the discussion of Powell, his life, his works and especially his interest in the visual arts. The organisers hope to attract Powell academics, enthusiasts, aficionados and newcomers to his work alike.

Papers and discussions during the conference might include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Powell's interest in the visual arts and art history
  • his writings on art and artists
  • the artists amongst Powell's friends
  • Powell's own work as an artist
Papers that directly address the conference theme of Anthony Powell and the Visual Arts will be especially welcome and may be given priority.


Prospective speakers are invited to submit for review paper proposals of not more than 300 words, with a short bio-sketch. Proposals must be received by 31 January 2018. Authors will be advised no later than 28 February 2018 whether their paper has been accepted for the conference.

Please see the Call for Papers for further information.
