Reassessing Women's Writing of the 1840s and 1850s
21 to 22 July 2014
The conference seeks to explore this provocative mix of women’s writing from 1840-1859, from both canonical authors such as the Brontës, Christina Rossetti and George Eliot, and writers who enjoyed remarkable success in their day but have since fallen into critical neglect, such as Caroline Clive and Adelaide Procter.
