This talk will explore the characteristics of early modern women’s practised belief. It will sketch varying constructions of heroinism and interiority within an emerging public sphere. Can we understand  private godliness and public morality as feminine concerns? A retreat from the world could then stimulate group activity and political radicalism.

Speaker: Patricia Demers, Department of English at the University of Alberta
