Toronto Renaissance and Reformation Colloquium presents

In Translation: Foreign Recipes in Englishwomen's Seventeenth-Century Manuscript Recipe Books

Manuscript recipe books attributed to Ann, Lady Fanshawe, Sarah Hughes, and Mary Granville and Anne Granville Dewes are notable for their inclusion of Continental recipes, often recorded in their language of origin. This lecture will investigate women's involvement in translating, defining, and assimilating the "outlandish" as part of a broader female participation in networks of transnational exchange.

Madeline Bassnett is an Assistant Professor at the University of Western Ontario. She has published on the topics of early modern women's writing and food studies in journals such as Modern Philology, The Seventeenth Century, and Studies in English Literature. Her book, Women, Food Exchange and Governance in
Early Modern England, is forthcoming from Palgrave Macmillan.

 

The Toronto Renaissance and Reformation Colloquium events are free and open to all. Catering costs are covered by a modest annual membership fee. Please consider joining.
