Conference: The Forgotten Women of French History 2/2

Women reigned, they wrote, they campaigned, they created, they fought and they sometimes shouted. And yet they are mostly absent from the history manuals or consigned to the margins.

This cycle of two lectures will attempt to bring some of these women back to life by looking at a selective but representative sample of figures whose influence has been lost in the shadows or largely overlooked. The talks will also reconsider some of the more well-known figures whose role has often been misrepresented, over-simplified or trivialised in the popular imagination.

This first lecture will explore the Forgotten Women of French History before the Revolution, from Eleanor of Aquitaine to Marie-Antoinette.

Second lecture about this topic from the Revolution and beyond will be on the 27 of August.

Where: Alliance Française Adelaide, 319 Young Street, Wayville
