Forum on Irish Studies

Irish Fiction and the New Woman Movement at the end of the Nineteenth Century

Speaker:  Prof. James H. Murphy (Boston College, USA)

Time:  10:10-12:00

Date: May 22, 2019 (Tuesday)

Venue: Room 408 of the SEIS Building


For about fifteen years or so from the mid 1880s there was a remarkable outpouring of British fiction that dealt with the condition of women and drew attention to the hypocrisies of their treatment in Victorian society. Many of the leading members of the group, including Sarah Grand, who coined the term ‘New Women’ for them, Iotaa and George Egerton, were Irish. In this seminar we will learn about the Irish new women and read and discuss extracts from their novels.
