Heroines of the Canongate: A Different Perspective on Urban Reform in the Edwardian Old Town

5th February, 2018
St Andrew's and St George's, 13 George Street, Edinburgh

Urban reform in the Old Town is often associated with the names of HD Littlejohn and Patrick Geddes. This lecture adopts a different perspective, focussing on the many women who effected change in environments in and around the Canongate. Speaker Dr Elizabeth Darling is reader in Architectural History at Oxford Brookes University. Her work focusses on gender, space and reform in the 1890s-1940s and the genesis and nature of English modernism between the wars.
