Talk: Elizabeth Inchbald’s pocket diaries, 11 May, London

In(ter)ventions has also had our attention drawn to this talk by Dr Laura Engel on the eighteenth-century actress, playwright, and novelist Elizabeth Inchbald’s pocket diaries as embodied archive, happening tonight, 5.30pm-8pm at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London.

Engel writes that: “The pocket diary can be seen as a prop left over from the scenes of Inchbald’s daily performances, and it can also be understood as an ongoing chronicle of the processes of her embodied actions…I argue that the pocket diary falls some place in between the stability of a permanent record and the ephemerality of performance”.
