Ms. Mariani presented this fascinating bit of history in a manner that drew me in. Her slides were beautiful and her accompanying talk about them were well laid out and were described with her keen interest in the subject. A wonderful presentation.
This webinar was fascinating. Irene melded the art and meaning of fans with Jacobite history and the role of women generally. I had not expected the topic to be so engaging. I also appreciated how Irene used the various tools of PowerPoint to focus us and better demonstrate the importance of the objects. Excellent presentation. Thank you.
An interesting, well presented lecture about fashion and politics made exciting by Mariani's invitation to imagine what it was like for women to make their political thoughts know by flicking open a fan, flashing a suggestive subversive image. She includes other decorative objects in this survey.
I should know by now that a lecture with Irene Mariani will open my eyes to a whole new world of information. Who knew that Jacobite women were capable of subtle espionage ?
I was not quite sure what to expect form this lecture but it turned out to be such a treat. Irene’s presentation was totally engaging from the very beginning. Loved it.
