LUCY HUTCHINSON: LIFE WRITING, RELIGION AND POLITICS
St Edmund Hall, Oxford, Thursday 28 November 2013
This conference will be the first ever occasion devoted to the life and writings of Lucy Hutchinson (1620-81). It will bring together scholars who are working on a new edition of her collected works
(http://www.cems-oxford.org/projects/lucy-hutchinson) and many others with an interest in seventeenth-century literature, politics and women’s writing. The conference will explore Hutchinson’s neglected theological writings as well as engaging with her representation of the Civil War in the Memoirs and with questions of gender, form and representation in her poetry. Participants include Penelope Anderson, Martyn Bennett, Mark Burden, Elizabeth Clarke, Cassie Gorman, Jonathan Gibson, Crawford Gribben, Sarah Hutton, Erica Longfellow, David Norbrook, Elizabeth Scott-Baumann, Mihoko Suzuki, Susan Wiseman, and Blair Worden.
