Book Launch - Dundee's Two Intrepid Ladies
Join us for the launch of the Society's latest publication, Dundee's Two Intrepid Ladies - A Tour Round the World by D C Thomson's Female Journalists in 1894, written by Susan Keracher.
In the 1890s, two women newspaper correspondents from Dundee embarked on an epic journey around the world for their employer, D C Thomson. Their assignment lasted almost a year, during which time they visited 10 countries and travelled over 26,000 miles. Their lively, illustrated reports give a fascinating insight into 19th-century travel and the role and status of women throughout the world. This book features a selection of highlights from these ground-breaking and highly entertaining accounts, presenting an appealing mix of travel writing, social history and gender politics. The detailed introduction and annotations help to place the original texts within their social and historical context.
Location : The McManus: Dundee's Art Gallery & Museum
