IAS Fellow's Public Lecture - Ritual Structures, Narratives and Female Identities (Professor Tiziana de Rogatis, Università per Stranieri di Siena, Italy)

28th November 2017, 17:30 to 18:30, Kenworthy Hall, St Mary's College

In this lecture, Professor Tiziana de Rogatis will identify the salient features that allow us to define the structure of initiation rites from an anthropological perspective. She will then establish a connection between these ritual repertoirs and the narrative mechanisms of a selection of texts of premodern, modern and contemporary writers that describe the fate of a woman.

This lecture is free and open to all.
