Cynthia Brown, professor of French at the University of California at Santa Barbara, will give this year's Ruth J. Dean Lecture.

In speaking on Celebrating Women in Manuscript and Print: Notions of Fame and Authority in Early Modern France, Brown will explore the cultural and political legacy of Queen Anne of Brittany and other early-modern French women of influence, as observed in prints and other images.

The Ruth J. Dean lecture series is sponsored by the Mount Holyoke College French department in memory of the late Ruth J. Dean, Mary Lyon Professor Emeritus of French and the first woman president of the Medieval Academy of America. Dean taught at Mount Holyoke from 1934 to 1967.
