Event description

Description

Anne Clifford is a key figure in seventeenth century literary and material culture. Her historical work, the Great Books of Record engage with antiquarian, genealogical and biographical trends in the period. Her autobiographies explore the uses and limits of the autobiographical form, while her building projects and economic, social and political management of her extensive land holdings in Westmorland and northwest Yorkshire transformed these communities. This conference will explore Anne Clifford’s work – both in text and on the ground—within her culture. It brings together international scholars who will discuss early modern reading practices, devotional engagement, life-writing and autobiography, and architecture and art. The plenary will be delivered by Professor Mihoko Suzuki. Invited speakers include Professor Patricia Phillippy, Dr John A.A. Goodall , Professor Karen Hearn, Professor Julie Eckerle, Professor Naomi Miller, Professor Leah Knight, Professor Micheline White and Professor Heidi Brayman Hackel. The conference will be held at Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal home to Anne Clifford’s Great Picture. This conference is sponsored by the University of Huddersfield. This is a small conference with spaces for twenty participants in addition to the invited speakers. Early career researchers are encouraged to attend.
