Critical Speakers Series: Laura L. Knoppers

Dr. Knoppers began her talk with a recipe taken from a letter from William Newcastle to his wife, Margaret Cavendish, about the best way to fatten a chicken. Dr. Knoppers thus largely situated her analysis of Margaret Cavendish in dialogue with medical advice widely circulated at the time. She also used the familial correspondences between Margaret Cavendish, William Newcastle, and their family physicians to gain a new perspective on the continuously vexed questions of Cavendish, gender, and early modern medicine.
