Gender and Authority Seminar 3: Lynn Ellen Burkett (Western Caroline University) and Alexis Brown (University of Oxford).

The TORCH Gender and Authority Research Network jointly funded by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities and Balliol Interdisciplinary Institute hosted its third Seminar on 1st June at Somerville College, University of Oxford. The seminar focuses on the representations of women and women's cultural interests in popular outlets. We hear from Lyn Ellen Burkett (Western Carolina University) on ‘Teena and the Musical Canon: Music in Seventeen Magazine, 1944-1953′ and Alexis Brown (University of Oxford) on ‘Lady Lazarus: Textual Authority in Christine Jeff’s Sylvia (2003)’. The recording has been edited to remove copyright material from the opening of the film Sylvia (http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfilms/film/sylvia/gallery/), which itself features a text which recalled but did not reproduce copyright material from Sylvia Plath's own works.
