Following a successful Centenary Conference at St Anne’s College, Oxford in 2019, and the first virtual conference in 2021, the Tenth International Conference on Iris Murdoch will take place at the University of Chichester in 2022. The conference will showcase ongoing, and published, Murdoch scholarship with a particular focus on Place and Space. Current research on Murdoch’s fiction, philosophy, theology, personal journals, letters and poetry, and their political and cultural significance, will also be presented.

All tickets include:

  • A guided tour of Chichester on Thursday evening (dinner optional, not included)
  • Entry to all events and keynote talks on site
  • Refreshments each morning
  • 2-course lunch on each day of the conference (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday)
  • Afternoon tea on the Friday and Saturday

Please note: Evening meals are not included. There is a conference dinner on the Sunday evening, details of which will be confirmed nearer the time. A link to our on-site accommodation (bed and breakfast) will be provided on purchase of your conference ticket.

The Iris Murdoch Collections at Kingston University Archives will be extending its opening hours before, during and after the conference to accommodate researchers. Bookings should be made in advance to archivist Dayna Miller by emailing

Please forward any enquiries relating to the conference itself to organisers Dr Miles Leeson and Dr Frances White at
