May 5, 2022

Thursday, May 5th at 2pm CT (3pm ET), Prof. Catherine M. Jaffe, co-editor, and Dr. Elizabeth Lewis, contributor, will appear in a live virtual discussion and Q&A featuring their new Louisiana State University Press book, "Society Women and Enlightened Charity in Spain."

Sign up for the event:

In original essays drawn from a myriad of archival materials, "Society Women and Enlightened Charity in Spain" reveals how the members of the Junta de Damas de Honor y Mérito, founded in 1787 to administer charities and schools for impoverished women and children, claimed a role in the public sphere through their self-representation as civic mothers and created an enlightened legacy for modern feminism in Spain.
