Edwardian Encounters / Book Reviews

'Interior, Gilr Reading' by Mary McEvoy, 1901

‘Interior, Girl Reading’ by Mary McEvoy, 1901

In direct response to conference feedback the network is looking to expand its web-site to include new and expanded features. Over the next few months, we intend to publish more book and exhibition reviews, and to launch a series of essays under the title ‘Edwardian Encounters’.

‘Edwardian Encounters’ will consist of short essays (no more than 1, 000 words) on a single text (novel, poem, play, essay) or object (painting, building, sculpture) from the ‘long Edwardian Era’ (1895-1914).

The aim of the series is to draw attention to works that are less well-known, and to shed light on current research. Researchers are encouraged to stage their discussion in any way they choose, from personal encounters to new theoretical perspectives. We also encourage researchers to work outside of their discipline (i.e. literary scholars writing about art works, and vice versa). This is a perfect opportunity to try out new ideas on scholars in your field, and to get involved in the network. All ‘Edwardian Encounters’ will be published on this web-site.

If you are interested in contributing an essay to the series, or know of a book/exhibition you would like to review, please e-mail us at edwardianculture@hotmail.co.uk
