Professor Ulinka Rublack (Cambridge) will be delivering the 2019 Byrn Lecture, entitled "The Triumph of Fashion, 1300-1800," Monday, March 18 at 4:10 p.m. in Vanderbilt's Central Library's Community Room. Professor Rublack has published widely on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century culture as well as on methodological concerns. She chairs the UK and Republic of Ireland's German History Society. Her works include The Astronomer and the Witch: Johannes Kepler's Fight for his Mother (Oxford, 2015), Oxford Handbook of the Protestant Reformations (editor, 2016), and Dressing Up: Cultural Identity in Early Modern Europe (Oxford, 2012). Rublack has also recently co-edited The First Book of Fashion (2015), which presents the first color edition of the Books of Clothes of Matthäus and Veit Konrad Schwarz, an unparalleled chronicle of fashion innovation and male Renaissance lives between 1500-1570.
A reception will follow the lecture. The event is co-sponsored by the Department of History and the Jean and Alexander Heard Libraries.
