Mary Wollstonecraft Conference

The organisers are pleased to announce a one day conference on the Social and Political Thought of Mary Wollstonecraft to be held on Thursday 30th May (9am-5pm) at Birkbeck College, London.

While long admired as an inspirational and visionary feminist writer, only recently has Wollstonecraft been rediscovered as an important and innovative philosopher and political theorist in her own right. The papers in this gathering explore Wollstonecraft’s ideas both in relation to other female writers of the period and as providing valuable insights into issues of contemporary political relevance such as the nature of rights and the accommodation of cultural diversity.

Everyone is extremely welcome. If you have any queries about the event please
