Presentations

 

Since I've become passionate about the lives of these beautiful Venetian women, I'm happy to make presentations to your group! I've presented multiples times to Italian heritage groups, libraries, schools, men's and women's social clubs, museums, and more. The presentation can be tailored to meet your group's needs. Please contact me at kathleenanngonzalez@yahoo.com to set up a presentation. I live in San Jose, California, and can travel within the Bay Area easily.

 

Here's a sample of some of the presentations I can make:

 

* Venetian women's social classes: Life for the nobles, merchants, and workers.

* Venetian women in music: Composers, singers, and musicians and their place in society.

* Venetian women authors: Poets, playwrights, essayists, editors, translators, and more.

* Creativity and the Venetian woman: pastels, paint, glass, lace, and the pen.

* Women pushing the boundaries: racing in regattas, writing about women's equality, earning a university degree, speaking publicly, and running a glass factory.

* Venetian courtesans and their many talents as writers, musicians, and models.

* Venetian salon life: First she was a courtesan, then she was an arbiter of culture.

* Venetian women proto-feminists, leading the way centuries earlier than others.

 

Or the timeline: I present a timeline of women over the centuries and let the audience choose who they want to hear more about.
