Event description

Description

After Anne Lister returned home to Shibden in May 1832, the household appeared quite a conventional one. Besides Anne herself, there was her aunt, her widowed father and her younger sister Marian. But how conventional was it really? And, once Ann Walker moved in with Anne in autumn 1834, did the household become yet more unusual? Dr Jill Liddington sifts through domestic details in Anne Lister's diaries, both the handwritten and the coded passages, to look for answers.


This is a public lecture funded by the AHRC funded Network: Challenging Domesticity in Britain, 1890-1990, hosted by Dr Charlotte Wildman and Dr Eloise Moss


Doors open at 5pm and the event will be followed by a free reception at the Pankhurst Centre
