‘Edwardian Encounters’ is the title of a series of short essays (c. 1000 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 being done in the field. Researchers are encouraged to stage their discussion in any way they choose, from personal encounters to new theoretical perspectives.
If you are interested in contributing an essay to the series, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
