Current seminars

The Women’s Studies Group 1558-1837 seminars take place at the Foundling Museum, 40 Brunswick Square, London, WC1N 1AZ.  Seminars take place on the third Saturday of September, November, January, and March, between 1 and 4pm.  Doors open at 12.30pm, and there is a break for tea and coffee halfway through the session.  There are usually three speakers per seminar, and we start promptly so as to give time for supportive feedback and discussion from members.  Seminars are free and open to the public though non-members will be asked to make a donation of £2 for refreshments.

The WSG invites papers formal and informal, as well as works-in-progress, on any topic related to early modern and long eighteenth-century women’s and gender studies, be it literature, medicine, art, music, theatre, religion, economics, sexuality, and so on.  Early career and independent scholars are particularly welcome.  We put out a call for papers every February through August on sites like, but if you would like to be considered as a speaker please contact the Seminars Organiser, Dr Carolyn Williams.

Non-member attendees including speakers are strongly encouraged to join WSG, and can do so here.
