Women’s Visions, Visionary Women

liz-photo-amd-140-q90Congratulations to Professor Liz Herbert McAvoy, on her well-attended inaugural lecture ‘Women’s Visions, Visionary Women’. Delivered at Swansea on Thursday 29 January as part of the RIAH Public Lecture Series, this lecture blended autobiography with close reading and contextualisation of medieval visionary literature, and explored not only the significance and interconnectedness of women’s visionary writing from the thirteenth century to the end of the Middle Ages, but also how such literature can continue to speak to us today.

More information on the lecture can be found here; we at MEMO Swansea just want to say, to one of our own: congratulations, Liz, on your well-deserved Chair!
