Charlotte Brontë: Afterlives of a Modern Woman

Thursday Talks

This is a past event.

Thursday Talks

If you couldn’t get to Scarborough for our Brontë talk then don’t worry, we will be chatting about Charlotte on our doorstep too. 

Charlotte Brontë is an iconic woman, remembered for her novels and uncompromising life. From the dresses she wore to the letters she wrote, Charlotte is integral to the history of literature and an early feminist icon. Her work is bold and honest, and for over 200 years we have seen a smorgasbord of adaptations that reimagine her ground-breaking stories. On the anniversay of her birth, we ask; what gifts did Charlotte Brontë give us? And what makes them the gifts that keep on giving?

Our Thursday Talks are delivered by our knowledgeable Parsonage staff. This year we will be delivering them in person at the Parsonage, and online for anyone who can't make it to the Museum. Details on how to join are below.
