Women, Science, and the Body in Mid-Victorian Literary Culture


Drawing on texts such as Charlotte Brontë’s Villette, Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South, and George Eliot’s Middlemarch, Siobhan Harper explores key issues relating to science, medicine, the body, and the culture surrounding literature and science in the nineteenth century.

This lecture was recorded as part of Easter Lectures Day 2014, when postgraduate researchers delivered fresh insights into key undergraduate exam topics. Easter Lectures Day was organised by Laura McKenzie.
