12.00 noon: The Daphne Carrick Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Dr Rebecca Styler, Editor of the Gaskell Journal, taking as her title, Elizabeth Gaskell’s Maternal Theology. Setting Elizabeth Gaskell in the context of contemporary debates on the re-gendering of God, this talk considers the theological implications of her literary works, through which she imagined the divine in terms of motherhood. Works discussed include Cranford, Lizzie Leigh and Ruth.
