This Tuesday, October 18, invited speaker Ellen Rosenman will give a talk titled “Fictions of Belonging: Penny Novels and Radical Politics” at 11:00 am in Melrose E-102.
Ellen Rosenman is a Professor of English at the University of Kentucky. Her current book project examines the political implications of Victorian penny novels, strange and sensational tales written for and sometimes by members of the working classes.
Rosenman has published widely on Victorian popular fiction and social class, gender, and sexuality. Her publications include Unauthorized Pleasures: Accounts of Victorian Erotic Experience (2003) and Other Mothers: Beyond the Maternal Ideal (2008), co-edited with Claudia Klaver (Syracuse University).
This event is hosted by The Nineteenth-Century British Research Seminar.
