The British country house is a key site of power – but in the midst of global political organising and a pandemic that has thrown the future of such sites into doubt, the time to reckon with the networks and exchanges that have upheld such institutions is now.

Happening online on 25 & 26 January 2022, Power & Patriarchy investigates women’s contributions to founding, maintaining, resisting, and disrupting country houses, rejecting the purported 'scarcity' of women's lives and histories in such spaces.

This interdisciplinary conference will bring together early career scholars and practitioners to place the country house in dialogue with current feminist, queer, anti- and decolonial scholarship.
