‘Heroines of the Canongate: a different perspective on urban reform in the Edwardian Old Town’

Urban reform in the Old Town is often associated with the names of H.D.Littlejohn and Patrick Geddes. The lecture adopts a different perspective, focusing on the many women who effected change in environments in and around the Canongate.

Dr Elizabeth Darling is Reader in Architectural History at Oxford Brookes University. Her work focuses on gender, space and reform in the 1890s-1940s, and the genesis and nature of English modernism between the wars; and sometimes the intersections between the two.Her books include Re-forming Britain (2007), Women and the Making of Built Space in England (2007) and Wells Coates (2012). The lecture derives from her ongoing research into women reformers in the Canongate, which has focused particularly on St Saviour’s Child Garden, one of the earliest Free Kindergarten’s in the UK
