This year marks the twentieth anniversary of WISPS and we would like to celebrate one of our founding members, Emeritus Professor Dorothy Sherman Severin, OBE, who will be one of our keynote speakers.

The 19th Annual Conference will focus on archetypes old and new, from symbols and themes to settings and characters. In the title we make reference to the arquetype of the matchmaker paying homage to the work of both Professor Severin and visual artist Paula Rego, whom we thank for generously allowing us to use her artwork.

WISPS organizes annual conferences to act as a focus for all those working in university departments in Great Britain and Ireland and/or researching into fields such as feminist theory, history, cultural memory, linguistics, literature, cultural and textual theory, audio and film studies, performance studies, politics, anthropology, geography, queer theory, and theatre studies, within Luso-Hispanic cultures. WISPS also provides a wide network of trans and cis women researchers in feminist, gender and queer studies and a challenging but informal forum in which these issues and work-in-progress can be discussed.
