New confirmed speaker

We have some exciting news to share!

We are delighted and honoured to announce that Brian Eaton, great grandson of Pre-Raphaelite model Fanny Eaton, will be speaking at our conference. Brian will give a personal insight into the woman whose beautiful face graced so many paintings, including this one by Joanna Wells (née Boyce).

We are still welcoming abstracts for papers which celebrate the lives and achievements of the remarkable women of the Pre-Raphaelite circle – see the call for papers for further details. The deadline is not until 28 September, so there’s still plenty of time!
