I’m excited to share the news of an upcoming conference at Penshurst Place that focuses attention on Mary Wroth, England’s first female fiction writer, as well as Mary Sidney Herbert and other members of the Sidney-Herbert family.
The Sidneys of Penshurst and Beyond: Contexts, Connections, Collaborations 27-28 September 2022
Proposals are invited for papers which explore the connections between the writings of the Sidney-Herbert family coterie and the world beyond. The conference aims to explore literary collaborations: exchanges between members of the family circles; conversations with writers in Britain, Europe, and beyond; and collaborations across time through critical and creative writings.
Please send proposals for 20-30 minute papers to Alison Findlay, [email protected] by 30 July 2022.
