SWEETNESS, WOMEN AND EMPOWERMENT ACROSS BRAZIL AND SPAIN

2:00pm-3:00pm on Thursday 7 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Do women have a bigger sweet tooth? The intersections between women and sweets are long-lasting although little is known about women’s contributions in shaping the landscape of sweets throughout history. In this talk, we will discover the fascinating stories of women’s confectioners, housewives, nuns and cookbook writers who found creative ways to position themselves in male-dominated confectionery business and public opinion both in Brazil and Spain in the 18th-19th centuries.

Join historians Helen B. K. Marodin and Marta Manzanares to discover how women of different class, race, and occupation crafted their agency through confectionery arts and, in turn, gained authority and respectability.
