14.30 – Opening Remarks:
Roberto Vecchi (Direttore Dipartimento LILEC), Lilla Maria Crisafulli (GEMMA e EDGES), Rita Monticelli (Centro sull’Utopia) and Serena Baiesi (CISR)
15.00 – Video-Conference: A Conversation with Janet Todd (Emeritus Professor of the Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge), My Life with Three Women: Aphra Behn, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Jane Austen
I was very honoured to be the opening speaker in this conference but, since it was the first time that I have ever given a talk on Skype, I was far more aware of the technology than anything I was saying; it is a peculiar experience talking at a screen and not seeing the audience! As ever in Bologna conferences and seminars, the audience was gracious and they asked very apposite and far-reaching questions. Thank you!
