Women's History Network
We hold study days in three parts of the region, Bristol, Glamorgan, Cardiff and Exeter. These are open to everyone to attend. Speakers are in the main post-graduates andresearchers in women's history without an established institutional base. Established researchers also give work in progress papers. Study days provide a forum for discussion and an opportunity to gain feedback on work in progress in a supportive and unthreatening atmosphere.
Wednesday 8 March 2017
Celebrate and be inspired by amazing women travellers including Elizabeth Fox Tuckett, Ellen Tanner and Adela Breton. See original objects and talk to our team of curators and experts.
