Looks like an interesting talk at the Atkinson tomorrow evening.
I'm looking forward to speaking about 'The Victorians and Cleopatra' tomorrow @AtkinsonThe. 7pm.— VictorianMasculinity (@VictorianMasc) October 1, 2019
There will be mummies, monuments, and some rather scathing views on the Queen of the Nile by Charlotte Bronte!@EHUNineteen @English_EHU @EHU_Research pic.twitter.com/r2AUUJSC75
The author and presenter writes,
The nineteenth century was the age of the gentleman, the industrialist, the dandy, the man of letters, the imperialist. Victorian fiction too is filled with detectives, butlers, cads, clerks, actors, aristocrats, madmen and murderers. As an academic working in the field of masculinity studies, I’ll be posting about some of the fun things I find in the course of my research about Victorian constructions of manliness, as well as modern-day interpretations of the Victorian man in literature and film.
