Professor Hilary Hinds
Professor  Hilary Hinds, a scholar of Quakers and other early modern religious groups, is the author of God's Englishwomen: Seventeenth-Century Radical Sectarian Writing and Feminist Criticism /(Manchester University Press).

The lecture addresses the early Quaker movement's rhetoric of itinerancy: if Quakerism was premised on the stillness and silence of the meeting for worship, then how should we understand the movement's foundation in the ceaseless journeying of George Fox and other early Friends? Professor Hinds approaches this question through reference to the Lancaster Quaker Project website, and to her forthcoming book: George Fox and the Rhetoric of Early Quakerism.
