Wanton Nights and Riotous Feasts

16:07, Tue 24 Oct 2006

Drunkeness, celebrity gossip, murder and the sex lives of politicians and royalty - commentators in the early modern period were just as concerned about these issues as their contemporary counterparts. A new conference at the University of Warwick, "Wanton nights and riotous feasts": Early Modern Representations of Virtue and Vice, will examine how these concerns were expressed and the role that Vice and Virtue had in shaping people's lives and the politics and society of the time.

Rebecca Hayes is a Postgraduate student of the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies. Rebecca will be presenting a paper at the conference on Women and Seventeenth Century English Pornography.
