This interdisciplinary one day symposium will explore meanings and dynamics of the structures of early modern female micellanies and commonplace books, the histories of reading they reveal, notions arising of authorship and miscellaneity, the role of women as ‘vouchers’ or adjudicators of literary materials, and the transmission of knowledge in these female compilations.
