Please join us for the fourth session in the University of Edinburgh’s Eighteenth-Century Research Seminar series. The session will present new work in sensory history and aims to explore its place within eighteenth-century studies . Elisabeth Gernerd (University of Edinburgh), will present her paper ‘”Thrusts her arms into a muff”: The Sensory Position of Silk Muffs’, and William Tullett (King’s College London) will present his paper, ‘From Womb to Nose: Smell and the Performance of Gender in Eighteenth-Century England’.
All welcome. Seminars held at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, University of Edinburgh, from 4:30-6pm, and are followed by a drinks reception.
You can also follow the series on its twitter account @ECRS_Edinburgh. We’ll be live-tweeting the papers from that handle.
