Dr Eleni Philippou, Leah Broad, Theophilus Kwek and James Watt in conversation.
The Oxford Culture Review kicks off a new academic year with our Autumn event, Critical Writing! Good writing is ‘critical’ in both senses: as a vehicle of informed cultural opinion; and as a necessary response to fast-moving news cycles.
An informal discussion on the question, ‘What makes good academic criticism?’ This journal’s largest section is dedicated to reviews, and in this talk we focus on how to apply academic expertise – and good, clear writing – to works of art, literature, music, theatre, and scholarship. We’ll also hear from practitioners (active across the fields of poetry, translation, music, drama, and criticism) about how best to frame a truly constructive review.
