Jessica On Finding Your Feet

This summer we had the delight of hosting Jessica on her student placement. Now back home she is continuing to contribute to the life of GWL through supporting with Seeing Things research and social media. Below, we hear from Jessica as she reflects on her time, and learning, at GWL this summer.

Call For Proposals: Women’s Education in the Long 18th Century

The Women and Education in the Long 18th Century workshop aims to bring together researchers and artists who work in this broad but important subject, spanning several topics including gender history, music, theatre, dance, literature, and education. In June, the project seeks proposals of 10 minute presentations, on a range of connected subjects.
