Hispanic Feminist responses to the British Suffragettes
King's College London & Canning House Visiting Fellows Series
In this series, the academics of King's College London and Canning House's joint Visiting Fellowship Programme speak about their research projects, which have taken advantage of the extensive Canning House Library collection at KCL.
On 16 June, Professor Francesca Denegri, our second Visiting Fellow and Professor of Hispanic American Literature at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, discussed her research project, exploring tensions between the British Suffragette movement and Hispanic feminist networks in the late-19th and early-20th century, with Professor Catherine Davies.
Utilising a wide range of writings, including letters, journals and travelogues, Francesca has aimed to highlight the curiously ambivalent responses of Hispanic feminists to the activities of their counterparts in the UK.
