First Keynote: Professor Katharine Cockin

We’re excited to announce our first keynote speaker for our Re-Sounding Voices conference. Katharine Cockin is Professor of English at Hull University. She’ll be speaking about A Pageant of Great Women, a women’s suffrage play directed by Edith Craig and performed all over Britain in 1909-12. Performances included 50-90 local women’s suffrage activists taking the roles of ‘great women’, brought onto the stage in silence as visible evidence of women’s achievements in the past.
