Outline schedule:

  • Welcome from John Dugdale Bradley, Trustee of the Cottage
  • Opening remarks from Professor Elizabeth Sauer, Past President, Milton Society of America
  • Mandy Green and Sharihan Al-Akhras, editors of the volume, in conversation with the contributors
  • Q&A
  • A virtual guided tour of Milton’s Cottage

Women (Re)Writing Milton reconfigures the reception history of Milton and his works by bringing to the fore women reading, writing, and rewriting Milton, bringing together in conversation a range of voices from diverse historical, cultural, religious, and social contexts across the globe and through the centuries. The book encompasses a rich range of different literary genres, artistic media, and academic disciplines and draws on the research of established Milton scholars and new Miltonists. Like the female authors and artists whom they explore, the contributors take up a variety of standpoints. As well as revisiting the work of established figures, the volume brings new female creative artists, new subjects, and new approaches to the study of Milton.

Women (Re)Writing Milton is edited by Mandy Green and Sharihan Al-Akhras, and is published by Routledge.
