Op 13 juli vindt aan de University of Leeds het congres “Gendering the Book in the Long Eighteenth Century” plaats. Het programma vindt u hier.
“This conference aims to connect recent scholarship in the areas of book-history and material culture to work on Romantic constructions of masculinity and femininity by considering how men and women in the long eighteenth century imagined their relationship to textual objects. How did cultures of production, consumption, and exchange contribute to the construction of gendered identities? Did these practices and identities change over time, and how far was the book itself a gendered object?”
