Transatlantic Women in the Archives, 25 September, National Library of Scotland

Transatlantic Women in the Archives

2–4 pm, 25 September, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh

This event, part of the Transatlantic Literary Women series, explores the legacies of twentieth-century women writers. Four speakers will discuss their experiences of recovering the works and lives of women with connections to, and identities shaped by, both sides of the Atlantic. Join us to learn about Scottish explorer Isobel Wylie Hutchison (Jenni Calder); American novelist Edith Wharton (Donna Campbell); Jamaican poet and broadcaster Una Marson (Imaobong Umoren); and The Second Shelf, a rare book dealership specialising in works by women (A. N. Devers). This thought-provoking afternoon will discuss how female writers are represented in libraries, archives, the literary canon, and the publishing world.
