CANCELLED: Born, Bred, and the Undead: The Epistolary Novel and Irish Nationalism
Veröld - Hús Vigdísar
Jessica Murphy, adjunct lecturer of English at the University of Iceland, gives the talk Born, Bred, and the Undead: The Epistolary Novel and Irish Nationalism, in Veröld - House of Vigdís, 21 April at 16:30.
This talk examines how the epistolary novel broaches the concepts of character, autonomy, and nationhood in the nineteenth century. Writing fictional works consisting of letters was a vehicle for select Irish authors to write back to the British Empire and to explore and define Irish identity, culture, and lore.
