Dr Susan Jones, former soloist with the Scottish Ballet, and now a fellow of St Hilda’s College, Oxford, and the author of Literature, Modernism and Dance discusses literary influences on modern dance, from Isadora Duncan to Fred Astaire and Martha Graham, with classicist Dr Fiona Macintosh, fellow of St Hilda’s, director of the University of Oxford’s Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama, and editor of The Ancient Dancer in the Modern World. Discussions are chaired by novelist and St Hilda’s classics graduate Juliet McKenna.

Jones spent 15 years as a soloist with The Scottish Ballet, Glasgow, before beginning a career in academia. She has published widely on Joseph Conrad, including Conrad and Women, and she is currently editing Chance for the Cambridge Edition of Conrad. Macintosh’s publications include Dying Acts: Death in Ancient Greek and Modern Irish Tragic Drama, Greek Tragedy and the British Theatre 1660-1914 and Sophocles’ Oedipus Tyrranus.
