Annual Vernon Lee Lecture of the IVLS : Madeleine Goodall on “The Humanism of Clementina Anstruther-Thomson”

John Singer Sargent, Portrait of Clementina Anstruther-Thomson, 1889

Dear readers,

this year’s annual event will be dedicated to Vernon Lee’s bosom friend and collaborator: the humanist Clementina (“Kit”) Anstruther-Thomson, who passed away a century ago, on July 7th 1921.

We are delighted and honoured to announce that this year’s speaker is Madeleine Goodall, the Heritage Coordinator of Humanists UK. Historian Madeleine Goodall’s research specialises in the history and influence of humanism and freethought. She will lecture on “‘A hundred ways other people wouldn’t’: the humanism of Kit Anstruther-Thomson”.

The lecture is online, and attendance is free to all and open to members and non-members of the IVLS. To get the link from us, please, email

We look forward to meeting you online! Such a pleasure, even though it is only –once again– a virtual meeting!
