Elizabeth Inchbald: A Bicentennial Conference

St. Hugh's College, Oxford

2021 marks the bicentenary of the death of actress, playwright, novelist, and editor, Elizabeth Inchbald, whose plays are among the most popular of the final decades of the eighteenth century. This two-day conference will consider Inchbald’s work and legacy, both of which remain profoundly undervalued and understudied. The conference will include a professional, script-in-hand performance of Inchbald’s farce, Animal Magnetism (1788).
