Women and Gender in Early Modern Britain and Ireland: A Conference in Honour of Anne Laurence
Saturday 4 June 2016
Institute of Historical Research, London.
This one-day conference, ‘Women and Gender in Early Modern Britain and Ireland’, is being held in honour of Anne Laurence and celebrates the significance of her research in this field. It will showcase new directions in gender and women’s history, bringing together several diverse strands in the current historiography. Existing research on early modern gender across the British Isles has been insufficiently integrated and this conference will foster new connections. The conference will also consider the interrelation of gender and finance in the early modern period. As such the themes of the day not only honour the pioneering work of Anne Laurence as a scholar of early modern gender, finance and patronage in a British and Irish context, but also highlight important new directions in the study of early modern women and gender.
Speakers will include: Dr Amy Erickson, Prof. James Daybell, Dr Gemma Allen, Prof. Mary O’Dowd, Dr Frances Nolan, Dr Rosalind Carr, Prof. Jane Humphries, Dr Judith Spicksley and Dr Amanda Capern.
(I will be attending this conference so feel free to say hello).
