The Six Degrees of Francis Bacon (Six Degrees) project, in association with Carnegie Mellon University, the Pittsburgh Consortium for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Digital Humanities Research at Pitt (DHRX), the Digital Media Lab at Pitt, and the Folger Shakespeare Library, invite you to participate in Networking Early Modern Women, a day-long, multi-site event dedicated to incorporating women and their relationships into the social networks of early modern Britain. Taking place both online and in person on Saturday, January 23rd, the event will begin at 10:30 AM EST with a livestreamed, keynote address from Professor Amanda Herbert, author of Female Alliances: Gender, Identity, and Friendship in Early Modern Britain, a book recently named the best book of 2015 by the Society for the Study of Early Modern Women. Participants in this meetup and add-a-thon will learn how to contribute women and their relationships to SixDegreesofFrancisBacon.com before joining with like-minded participants to help enrich our collaborative picture of Britain’s early modern social network.
