An online WEA seminar over two Saturday mornings, with WEA tutor Julian Day. Uses WEA Canvas/Zoom programmes. Course ref C3745713

This is an exploratory seminar to introduce students to the lives of actresses in the 18th Century and how they navigated their way through a patriarchal system that was designed to have as much control over their lives as possible. Compelling case studies will be discussed and how their memory and legacy was eventually going to break free from these control systems.
