I am looking for a scholar to write an entry on “Domestic Violence” for Violence in American Society: An Encyclopedia of Trends, Problems, and Perspectives. Unfortunately, I had this entry fall through—someone cancelled last-minute and now I’m scrabbling to find a writer able to take on the subject, which would generally include violence at home, often (but not always) directed at children and spouses. The entry would look at historical, contemporary, and mediated depictions of domestic violence in the United States.

The year 2018 marks the bicentenary of Emily Brontë’s birth, one of nineteenth century’s most enigmatic and imaginative women writers. Although her greatest claim to fame still rests upon her solo novel Wuthering Heights – a grand saga of passion enacted against the timeless Moors – her poetry also reveals a powerful inner world of imaginative and spiritual bonding with the Supreme Being. Emily and her siblings were an exclusive band who were mostly unschooled, made very few friends in the village, their playgrounds being the open moors at the back of their home and their own vivid imaginations.
