Event details

Join Dr Tim Reinke Williams, social, economic and cultural historian of early modern Britain, and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and senior lecturer at Northampton University for a fascinating lecture.

This lecture will outline how women such as Mary Beale participated in the social life of Restoration London and contributed to the growth of the metropolitan economy in the decades after 1660.

With an overview covering population expansion in London and the structure of later seventeenth-century households, the talk will focus on how trade and industry were organised in the early modern city, focusing particularly on the role played by women workers.

Culminating in research on women's participation in the creative industries in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, including discussion of their production of paintings.
