CURA: 'Our Three Selves': Radclyffe Hall's Cultural Catholicism

  • Starts: 12:45 pm on Friday, November 13, 2020
  • Ends: 2:15 pm on Friday, November 13, 2020
CURA Colloquium with Kathryn Lamontagne, Lecturer, British History For Radclyffe Hall, the author of the groundbreaking lesbian novel, The Well of Loneliness (1928) and a convert to Catholicism, practices of piety and Catholic material culture offered a sense of belonging for someone most often "othered." Through her writing and archival records, Hall's cultural Catholicism is traced in light of her privilege, sexuality, and the contemporary English Roman Church. The intersection of her queerness and faith underlie a kind of radical conservatism where Hall's ability to harness dissonance, reinvention, and expression are reminders of the power and potential of Catholic lay womanhood to transcend the conventional.
