Forgotten Heroine? Recovering Emily Hobhouse 1899-1926


To coincide with International Women's Day Dr Helen Dampier explores the issues associated with recovering 'forgotten' women as 'heroines', focusing on the Emily Hobhouse Letters Project.

The project recovers the letters and networks of Hobhouse (1860-1926), who was a humanitarian reformer and campaigner. She is celebrated in South Africa as a heroine of the South African (Boer) War (1899-1902) but largely unknown in Britain. 


This event is part of Leeds Cultural Conversations, a series of lunchtime talks organised by the Centre for Culture & the Arts. For more information on the series please visit the website.
