Description

During the past decade, there has been increased scholarly attention to women’s participation in cultural production through groups—salons, literary circles, scientific and philosophical circles and academies, religious circles, medical communities, artists’ and performing artists’ communities, correspondence networks, and patronage networks. Such groups provided women key points of entry into public discourses of many sorts. This session will explore the “longue durée” of learned circles and communities in which women participated over the course of two and a half centuries.
