Stitch and Bitch: Knitting, Femininity and Women's Everyday Lives


The first talk in the Leeds Cultural Conversations series 2018/19.

Presented by Dr Katherine Harrison (Leeds Beckett University) and Dr Cassie Ogden (Liverpool John Moores University).

Knitting has undergone a resurgence in popularity in the early 21st century yet is still generally derided as a boring domestic pastime, conducted by passive elderly women, with little significance for contemporary society. This talk reveals findings from research with real-life knitters to discuss the often-overlooked importance of knitting in female relationships, identity and creativity.

Attendees are welcome to bring their knitting to this event.

This event is part of the Leeds Cultural Conversations series organised by the Centre for Culture & the Arts at Leeds Beckett University.
