In front of an audience of over 100 Mill enthusiasts, we heard about Mill’s feminist commitments and his views on democracy in America. Fittingly for Mill, whose writings are still so relevant over a hundred years after he produced them, both lectures were highly topical as well as engaging. The text of both lectures will be made available in the Friends Newsletter appearing in July/August.
The audience also had the opportunity to join the Friends of the John Stuart Mill Group to support future events, to stay in touch with JSM research and perhaps most importantly, to create a fund for preservation work on the marginalia in coming months and years.
