Helen Smith (University of York): Guest lecture on early modern women and printing

September 19 at 17:30 19:00

Professor Helen Smith’s book, Grossly Material Things, and edited collection, Renaissance Paratexts, have shaped debates about the presence of women as actors and agents in the literary marketplace, highlighting women’s involvement in the commissioning, printing, distribution and consumption of printed materials in the early modern period. She also comments on the gendered relations between writing, translating, publishing, and reading discernible in literature from this era. She will join us at Lambeth Palace Library to discuss women’s roles in the printing industry in the early modern period.

All are welcome, but those wishing to attend should book a free ticket via Eventbrite or email archives@churchofengland.org no later than Wednesday 18 September.

Please note that tickets must be booked individually for security purposes.
