Lunchtime Discussion
Free of charge; limited seating
RSVP required by Oct. 7 to cwcit@depaul.edu

Join Paula McQuade, Associate Professor of English here at DePaul, for a lunchtime presentation exploring cross confessional devotional reading in early modern England--that is, how 17th-century Protestant women used catechisms to read and respond to Catholic texts. Specifically, she will look at a text written by Barbara Slingsby Talbot (featured in the image here), a Church of England Protestant who sympathetically reads and redacts her father's Catholic devotional manual.

Paula McQuade received her Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1998. She has published articles exploring the intersection of religion and gender in early modern drama and on early modern women writers. She received DePaul’s Excellence in Teaching Award in 2005. (Full bio)
