MiddleWOmen: Networking and cultural mediation with and between women (1850-1950)

May 7, 2015 - May 8, 2015

 

On 7 and 8 May 2015 (Brussels, Belgium) the Centre for Reception Studies (CERES), the HERA Travelling TexTs project and Huygens ING organise a roundtable conference on the relations between gender, networking and cultural transfer activities in the late 19th and early 20th century.

This workshop wants to explore the formation of networks concerning women, their different modes of transferring cultural objects and gaining access to literature, texts and knowledge.

Next to two lectures by professor Margaret H. McFadden (Appalachian State University) and Suzan van Dijk (Huygens ING), the participants will engage in roundtable discussions based on a short informal presentation of their own research and on a by each participant chosen article (not written by the participant) that will be sent to the other participants beforehand.

For more information, see their call for proposals: MiddleWOmen
