This one-day interdisciplinary conference, entitled 'Domestic dissidents: a reexamination of the lives, exchanges and everyday experiences of radical religious women, 1500-1800', seeks to bring together scholars of all levels whose research touches upon the everyday lives and networks of dissident women in early modern England, America and Europe. Traditional histories of sectarian and non-conformist women in the early modern period have attested to the prominent role women had in the spread of religious sectarianism and the survival of individual movements such as the Methodists, Baptists, Quakers and Catholic recusants. However, very little has been discussed about the non-religious elements of these womens' lives and experiences and how their religious affiliation affected their position as wives and mothers and as members of communities. Through a comparative framework, the conference aims to draw out key debates in the study of women and radical religion and seeks to explore the less familiar aspects of their lives as religious dissidents in the period 1500-1800.
