Profit and Passion

Book Reading by Nicole von Germeten

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

In Profit and Passion, Nicole von Germeten narrates the history of the women who carried and resisted labels of ill repute such as whore and prostitute. Her analysis concentrates on the words women spoke in court and on how their language changed over time, pointing to a broader transformation in the history of sexuality, gender, and how legal processes affected women. Lightly catered, open to all.
