Dr Lizzy Spencer, 18 February 2020

The first CRECS research seminar of Spring 2020 will take place on Tuesday 18 February at 6.30pm in room 2.47 (John Percival Building, Cardiff University, CF10 3EG).

We are delighted to welcome Dr Lizzy Spencer to Cardiff.

Lizzy is a Lecturer in Eighteenth Century and Public History at the University of York. Her research interests lie in the gender, social, and material history of England, 1680-1830, and in particular on the lives of women. She also has practical and research interests in Public History, including living history and re-enactment, museum display, and period dramas.

This talk will give an introduction to Lizzy’s current research project, which offers one of the first in-depth historical studies of women and accounting – and of women as accountants – in England c.1680-1830. It will trace the evolution of the project from doctoral research into women and their clothing and, drawing on a wide range of sources including account books, bills and receipts, drafts, and correspondence, will suggest that we need to pay careful attention to the intertextual processes involved in keeping account.

Please join us for: ‘Women, Accounting, and Intertextuality in England c.1680-1830’ on Tuesday 18 February at 6.30pm (room 2.47). All welcome. Refreshments provided.

Questions? Contact Dr Anna Mercer (mercerA1@cardiff.ac.uk) and Dr Josh Powell (powellJ15@cardiff.ac.uk).
