Carolyn Lyle, who publishes also as Carolyn Williams, writes:
In my capacity as Committee Member for the London-based Women’s Studies Group 1558-1837, I prepared the 2012-2013 programme for speakers’ sessions: these are international events with speakers ranging from doctoral students to senior academic professionals. As follows:
Women’s Studies Group, 1558-1837 (London-based), speaker sessions for 2012-2013.
All 3 meetings will take place in SENATE HOUSE, London University, near Malet Street. In each case the rooms have been booked for 1-6 pm, to give us time to make preparations and clear away afterwards, but we expect sessions to run from 2-5.
