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:
