Council Room, King's College London
Organised by Hannah Dawson and Hannah Murphy | Hosted by the Centre for Early Modern Studies at King’s College London
A day’s colloquium to think about feminism as both a practice and an object of early modern history, and of history more broadly. We have a very open agenda: to bring people together from different disciplines and perspectives to think critically and synergistically about – perhaps – the political project of feminism in relation to the putatively objective discipline of history, how feminism relates to other political projects within the academy, how we can think intersectionally, inclusively and globally, how we can make sense of the category of ‘woman’ through time and space and in the contexts of race and class. Some speakers might talk very concretely about particular people and places and others might ruminate more theoretically. The more angles the better – the hope is that we’ll think together, and anew, about gender, power, marginality, and the lens of feminism, in history.
Speakers will include: Sam Bailey, Jelke Boesten, Catherine Boyle, Amy Louise Erickson, Susan James, Meleisa Ono-George, Amza Reading, Lyndal Roper, Barbara Taylor, Helena Taylor.
Attendance is free, but registration is necessary! Registration will close at 5pm on 8 May.
