Annual workshop

Keynote: Professor Judith Hawley

Date: Saturday, 2nd May 2020


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 Laura Gowing of King’s College London, and Professor Jeanice Brooks of the University of Southampton.

Professor Judith Hawley (Royal Holloway, University of London) will join us for our next annual workshop, which will take place on Saturday, 2nd May 2020. Professor Hawley’s research focusses on eighteenth-century literature and culture and she has published on a range of subjects from literature and science to Laurence Sterne. Further details regarding the theme of the workshop will be announced in the winter.
