The International Conference on ‘Women’s Histories: the Local and the Global’organised by the International Federation for Research in Women’s History (IFRWH) and the Women’s History Network, UK (WHN) begins tomorrow, August 29 at the Sheffield Hallam University, UK. No Brontës in the conference programme but with some Brontës in the social programme:
Optional excursions to the Bronte Parsonage in West Yorkshire are planned for the afternoon of Sunday 1 September. The cost of the outings will be £25 per person based on a minimum attendance. Outings will leave Sheffield at approximately 1:00pm with arrival back at approximately 6:30pm. (...)
The visit will included a guided walk through the village of Howarth (sic) beginning at the atmospheric churchyard in front of the Parsonage and finishing at the infamous Black Bull where it is said that Branwell Brontë spent much of his time. This will be followed by an independent viewing of the museum; there are free room guides and museum staff to answer your questions.
