«No Happy Ending? At Home with Miss Bates in Georgian England» by Amanda Vickery, professor of early modern history at Queen Mary University of London. This is Selwyn College's annual Ramsay Murray lecture.

Pemberley, Mansfield, Norland, Uppercross, Northanger, Randalls…. These are magical names which conjure an entire social landscape, a constellation of houses, each one different in human makeup, material appointments and emotional climate. How many times have we imagined those interiors? But what did they really contain?

This lecture opens the door to colour the walls and stock the wardrobes. It is interested in the real women who whether by chance or design had to make a home without the protection, or government, of men.

Admission free; all welcome.
