Full Event Details:

The School of English, Drama and American and Canadian Studies at the University of Birmingham is hosting a Sixth Form Study Afternoon from 2pm-5pm, suitable for both Y12 and Y13 students. It is thematic in focus and will consider relations between power and gender based on the following texts: Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale; Churchill, Top Girls; and Chaucer, Wife of Bath’s Prologue and Tale. The afternoon will be of particular interest to those currently studying one of these texts. The event will take the form of four 30-minute talks by individual members of the academic staff, with a concluding 30-minute question-and-answer session. There will also be a 30-minute interval in which sixth-formers and teachers can talk to academics in the School of English, Drama and American and Canadian Studies so it will also be useful for anyone planning to study any of these subjects at university. The cost of the event will be £5 for students, with free attendance for teachers.
