A Victorian Woman Ventures Securely into Men’s Realms: Journalism, Politics, and Radical Advocacy
John Rylands Research Institute Visiting Professor Tracy C. Davis will, on the 22 March 2017, deliver a lecture which questions the popular belief that the only female Victorian theatre critic known to have written for the popular press was Pearl Craigie (1867-1906). Professor Davis will discuss new research findings which make a claim for a significantly earlier exponent of dramatic criticism, Amelia Chesson (1833 – 1906).
Tickets for this public lecture can be booked at Eventbrite.
