Head for Cambridge if you’re a Heyer fan: on 7 November 2009 at Lucy Cavendish College there’s going to be a one day conference on Re-reading Georgette Heyer. Some of the presentations sound amazing, such as these three:
2:30 Catherine Johns: ‘Class and Breeding’
3:00 Sarah Annes Brown: ‘Lady of Quality and Homosexual Panic’
3:15 K. Elizabeth Spillman: ‘Cross Dressing and Disguise in Heyer’s Historical Romances’
…which are followed by a structured discussion of cross dressing and gender issues.
