Clara Schumann (née Wieck) and her World

International Bicentenary Conference

Date: 14–16 June 2019

Venue: Lady Margaret Hall

 University of Oxford



This three-day international conference provides a setting in which to reassess Clara Schumann’s life, work, and cultural milieu within the gender-aware and interdisciplinary climate of contemporary musicology. It is hoped that the conference will attract an international contingent of scholars working within the fields of musicology, aesthetics, gender studies, cultural history, and performance studies.

The organizers express gratitude to the following organizations for their support of the conference: The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), Oxford’s Faculty of Music, Music & Letters, and The Royal Musical Association.
