Queynte Laydies will be joining Dr Hetta Howes (City, UoL) and Dr Clare Whitehead (KCL) for the workshop 'Women's Voices: Medieval and Early Modern' at Queen Mary University, London.
We'll be taking part in a roundtable discussion and performing extracts from our plays, alongside playwright Dr Emma Whipday (author of Shakespeare's Sister).
"The medieval and early modern periods saw repeated attempts to theorise and regulate the female voice across a variety of different spheres, from the political and religious, to the judicial and domestic. However, recent research has revealed a number of ways in which women defied the established ideal of the silent woman in these periods.
This one-day workshop will create a dialogue across historical periods and creative and academic disciplines to consider the ways in which women's voices were heard, recorded and mediated."
