Queen Charlotte and TransAtlantic Women’s Intellectual Networks

25 January 2021

Queen Charlotte was a learned woman. She lived in an era of Anglo-American women’s intellectual and literary accomplishment, and she encouraged women writers.  This talk, drawing on the research and materials of the Georgian Papers Programme, highlights the connections between women and their ideas and their publications on both sides of the Atlantic.  It shows how their work crossed the Atlantic, and how it entered into politics at the highest levels in America and in Britain.  The Georgian Papers Programme is digitizing and interpreting materials at the Royal Archives, including letters and diaries of Queen Charlotte and women in her court.  This talk will draw on these materials, as well as those of women whose work is held in other libraries and archives, giving us a collective view of some of the interests and expertise women were developing in the late eighteenth century.
