TRRC Talk: Madeline Bassnett (English) “In Translation: Foreign Recipes in Englishwomen’s Seventeenth-Century Manuscript Recipe Books”

September 27, 2016 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Toronto Renaissance and Reformation Colloquium, a volunteer organization that presents lectures and other events drawing on the resources of Early Modern scholars and students in Toronto, southern Ontario, and northern New York state. TRRC functions as a regional community of scholars who come together independent of any single academic institution, offering programs locally and facilitating the community’s interests through a national journal and its presence at international societies. Sponsorship of its programme is made possible through partnerships with the Centre for Reformation and Reformation Studies, lectures occasionally co-sponsored with individual departments and institutes, and vitally, the subscriptions of members who want to ensure the Colloquium’s programme and its future.


Madeline Bassnett is currently Assistant Professor of English at the University of Western Ontario and will be speaking on the topic, “In Translation: Foreign Recipes in Englishwomen’s Seventeenth-Century Manuscript Recipe Books.”

Madeline completed her PhD in English at Dalhousie University in 2008. Her teaching and research focuses on the poetry and prose of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England and is particularly interested in early modern women’s writing, food studies, ecocriticism, and the early modern instructional manual, including recipe books (manuscript and print), and husbandry and military manuals.
