*Provisional Programme available and
Registration is now open*
Keynote speaker: Professor Jo Little, University of Exeter
This symposium offers a long-overdue forum in which to resituate the rural as a vital context for understanding the meanings of gender and space in the long Victorian period. Bringing together scholars from different disciplinary perspectives, including English literary studies, geography and history, we aim to understand the diverse experiences of gendered rural spaces and contribute to discussions about theoretical approaches to the (rural)space-gender intersection.
