Reframed - Conversations about Heritage and Inclusion
Admitting Women - College Fellowship and Gender Inequality
Our new monthly series of digital events reveals our collections in new ways – reframing our heritage to address issues of equality, diversity and inclusion. Featuring the College’s Heritage team, and some special guests.
The fourth instalment of our Reframed series takes a look at gender inequality in the College’s heritage with regards to the admission of members and fellows. Although being established since 1599, the first female fellow of the College was not admitted until 1912. We are thrilled to announce that we will be joined by Dr Morven McElroy, Consultant Geriatrician at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and Honorary Librarian of the College, as well as our new doctoral intern via the Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities, Kristin Hay.
The event is free to attend but please book in advance and we’ll send you details of how to join in with the conversation which will be hosted via Microsoft Teams. The event will start at 6pm.
