Week in Review – 5 May

Here’s my weekly round-up of what caught my attention last week (so. many. conferences…)

Firstly, the rediscovery of this ‘lost’ botanical text by Anne Kingsbury Wollstonecraft, “Specimens of the Plants and Fruits of the Island of Cuba.” The feminist history of botanical illustration is discussed in this great piece.

Secondly, this summer school on Rethinking the Baroque. 

Thirdly, the Renaissance Skin Reading Group, detailed here, which sounds like all sorts of fun.


Some publications that caught my eye:

This edited peer-reviewed collection on Museums and the Working Class  

This edited collection on Romanticism and Illustration 

This hugely exciting collection on Martial masculinities: Experiencing and imagining the military in the long nineteenth century
