SYMPOSIUM: Embroidered with dust and mortar: Women and Architecture, 1660-1840. London, 28 September 2019

The Georgian Group is pleased to announce its forthcoming symposium exploring how women contributed to and interacted with architecture in the period 1160-1840. This one-day symposium, on Saturday 28 September at the Society of Antiquaries, will reassess, and throw new light upon, female architectural achievement and the significance this has upon our understanding of architecture from this period. The symposium will be held from 10 am to 5.15 pm, and will be led by Dr Amy Boyington, Chair of the Young Georgian Committee. Speakers hail from a range of different backgrounds, including leading authorities on British architectural history, the decorative arts and women’s history – among them Clarisse Godard Desmarest, Richard Hewlings, Megan Leyland and Esme Whittaker – as well as a host of younger scholars. An evening reception will follow.
To see the full programme and to register, please visit the Group’s website.
