Writing Materials: Women of Letters from Enlightenment to Modernity
Thursday, 29 November 2012, King’s College, London, and Friday November 30 2012, Hochhauser Auditorium, Sackler Centre, V&A
Presented by The Elizabeth Montague Letters Project (an AHRC-funded research network), in association with King's College London and the University of Swansea, this interdisciplinary colloquium will explore the tools and environments of women’s writing in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It aims to create new connections between texts and material objects, linking intellectual history with its material medium – paper, quills, desks, letter-cases, ink and inkwells.
Speakers and participants include:
Pamela Clemit (University of Durham)
Dena Goodman (University of Michigan)
Peter Stallybrass (University of Pennsylvania)
Karen Harvey (University of Sheffield)
Clare Brant (King’s College London)
