Mary Toft's Monstrous Births of 1726: Then and Now

Mary Toft's Monstrous Births of 1726: Then and Now

Date
02/02/2017
Location:
Moore Building Lecture Theatre
Description
In 1726 Mary Toft gave birth to seventeen rabbits or parts of rabbits in Godalming, Surrey. Toft had looked at the animals during her pregnancy and their image was imprinted on her foetus. Based on new research, this engaging presentation explores why so many contemporaries, including eminent male Physicians believed in the hoax. Many portrayed Toft as a devious woman who set out to hoodwink the doctors and make her fortune, yet this lecture offers other explanations for the extraordinary actions of Toft and her family. The lecture also explores the social, physical and emotional experiences Toft underwent in the contexts of the work of contemporary midwives, gynaecologists and reproductive medicine.

Description
Dvorák's Piano Quintet in A Major occupies a lofty place in the chamber music canon shared perhaps only by two other works for the same ensemble from Schumann and Brahms. Throughout Dvorák's, the muscular drama freely intermixes with numerous sections of pure, euphoric beauty with a constant interlacing of magical dance music abounding with spontaneity and vitality.
