Look back, listen back: Kathryn Hughes on George Eliot’s Milk Churn

Need something to listen to on your commute, at home, or just for fun? Over the summer, we’ll be revisiting some of OCLW’s most successful and popular talks by reposting the event podcasts. Many of our events are recorded, so you don’t have to miss out on our fantastic speakers – even if you live on the other side of the world.

The first lecture we’ll be revisiting was by Kathryn Hughes, author of biographies of Isabella Beeton, and George Eliot, who spoke on Eliot’s milk churn, exploring how the object and the body interact, and how that story is written – or unwritten – in her biography. This lecture came out of our very successful conference on The Lives of Objects and a number of other associated talks are available: why not check them out?
