It’s not too late to register for the Victorian Popular Fiction Association’s annual conference. There’s a cracking programme this year, including two papers on Florence Marryat:
Éadoin Agnew, ‘”The Juggernaut of English domestic life”: Mimicry and Marriage in Florence Marryat’s Veronique’
Greta Depledge, ‘Experimental medicine and marital harmony: Florence Marryat’s In the Name of Liberty’
If you’re interested in only a particular session or paper, then discounted rates can be organised on the day. Just turn up, and we’ll accommodate your needs.
The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and anyone with an interest in Victorian fiction is welcome.
I hope to meet some of you there!
