Scheduled to coincide with the centenary of Aldous Huxley’s arrival at Balliol College as an undergraduate, this major international conference seeks both to reassess his diverse oeuvre, and to bring new attention to his relationships with his contemporaries. The conference, which incorporates the Fifth International Aldous Huxley Symposium, will look broadly at Huxley’s engagements with fellow British and American writers and with some of the key movements of his time.
The conference also seeks to reappraise the role of Oxford in the age of Huxley, and we will be encouraging participants to examine the ways in which his contemporaries responded in similar or quite different ways to the great historical shifts and crises that marked his writing life.
Accommodation will be offered at Balliol, celebrating the centenary of Aldous Huxley’s arrival at the college.
