Event description

Description

Guinevere Glasfurd’s The Words in My Hand tells the story of the love between a Dutch maid, Helena Jans, and the philosopher René Descartes. The story was hidden at the time and has been almost entirely lost from history since. Here, Guinevere Glasfurd and Emma Gilby discuss The Words in My Hand, movements between fact and fiction, and what it means to rethink and reimagine the canonical past.
