The Women’s Studies Group 1558-1837 annual workshop takes place every spring at The Foundling Museum, London.  The one-day workshop includes lunch, as well as refreshments, in the booking cost.  The day always follows the same format: a distinguished invited speaker provides the keynote in the morning, followed by discussion and lunch; then participants each give a 5-minute presentation on a subject relevant to the theme of the keynote, followed by discussion, and then the close of the workshop.  Previous speakers have included Professor Jacqueline Labbe of the University of Sheffield, and Professor Laura Gowing of King’s College London.
