Female Learning Communities in Seventeenth-Century Britain

When: Wed., Oct. 17, 6 p.m. 2018
Price: Free.
During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, English Catholic and Puritan gentlewomen were criticized for being too vocal or too educated. English society increasingly valued educated women, but men disapproved of women using their education and voices to argue for positions that men opposed. Susan Cogan, history professor at Utah State University, explores the power in women’s speech and ideas, and how educated viewpoints led to accusations of “unladylike behavior” for some early modern women.
