Bonnets and Brothels: The Women of Dublin Castle
This event is free to attend and open to all. The seminar will begin at 6pm, with tea and biscuits from 5.40pm.
Abstract: With few legal rights, early modern elite women were usually expected to live invisibly as wives and mothers. Many associated with the Castle fulfilled the domestic stereotype of quiet propriety. Others carved a more public role, harnessing the expressive power of their clothing and other materials, and causing a scandal or two along the way.
