Celebrating Hester Thrale Piozzi (1741–1821)
This conference celebrates the life and writings of Hester Lynch Salusbury Thrale Piozzi upon the bicentenary of her death. The conference will contribute to the ongoing reassessment of her much-neglected and seriously underestimated writings; illuminate her relationships with the Bluestockings; and explore how she bridged private and public spheres by translating informal conversation, improvisational dialogue, and performative sociability into text. As well as scholarly papers, the conference will feature the debut reading of Witty Woman, a new play about Hester Thrale Piozzi’s life, written by Felicity Nussbaum (UCLA) and directed by Michael Hackett, Head of Directing & Professor, UCLA School of Theater, Film, & Television .
