Membership of the Women’s Studies Group 1558-1837 is available to anyone and runs from September to September of each year. If you are a scholar of the early modern period and long eighteenth century, and interested in women’s history, writing, art, or music, and gender and labour, politics, economics, natural philosophy or material culture, amongst other topics, why not join?
Members can attend WSG’s annual seminar series (the next is in November), and pay a reduced price for its annual workshop, both of which take place at the Foundling Museum. They also enjoy benefits such as WSG’s invitation-only listserv, promotion of their scholarly activities on this website and our facebook and twitter accounts, and the chance to join WSG’s annual outing, which last year was to the Globe archives. The WSG is in the process of compiling a 30th anniversary celebratory anthology and has recently offered a £500 research bursary to its members too. WSG members have given public talks at the Foundling.
Annual subscription fees for those in the U.K. are £18.00 (waged) and £15.00 (student and unwaged), and for those overseas, £15.00 (waged) and £12.00 (student and unwaged). For further information, see here. Forms can be returned to WSG’s Treasurer by email or by post, or in person at WSG seminars and the workshop.
