Speaker(s): Jane Jordan and Andrew King
Join us to celebrate the publication of Ouida and Victorian Popular Culture, edited by Jane Jordan and Andrew King (Ashgate, 2013).
Ouida, the pseudonym of Louise Ramé (1839-1908), was one of the most productive, widely circulated and adapted of Victorian novelists, with a readership that ranged from Vernon Lee, Oscar Wilde and Ruskin to the nameless newspaper readers and subscribers to lending libraries.
This collection offers a radically new view of Ouida, helping us thereby to rethink our perceptions of popular women writers in general, theatrical adaptation of their fiction, and their engagements with imperialism, nationalism and cosmopolitanism.
Reception to follow in the Picton Room.
