Karin Wulf, US Academic Lead for the Georgian Papers Programme and Executive Director of the Omohundro Institute, will deliver “Queen Charlotte and Transatlantic Women’s Intellectual Networks” for the Bath Royal Literary & Scientific Institution on Monday, January 25, 2021 at 14:30-16:00 EST.
About the event:
Queen Charlotte was a learned woman. She lived in an era of Anglo-American women’s intellectual and literary accomplishment, and she encouraged women writers. This talk, drawing on the research and materials of the Georgian Papers Programme, highlights the connections between women and their ideas and their publications on both sides of the Atlantic. It shows how their work crossed the Atlantic, and how it entered into politics at the highest levels in America and in Britain. The Georgian Papers Programme is digitizing and interpreting materials at the Royal Archives, including letters and diaries of Queen Charlotte and women in her court. This talk will draw on these materials, as well as those of women whose work is held in other libraries and archives, giving us a collective view of some of the interests and expertise women were developing in the late eighteenth century.
Dr. Karin Wulf is Executive Director of the Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture, and Professor of History at William & Mary. Dr. Wulf is the US Academic Director of the Georgian Papers Programme.
