In the past year, several members of the Centre for Victorian Studies have been on BBC radio, sharing their expertise on nineteenth-century literature and culture.
In February, Professor Ruth Livesey joined Cerys Matthews to talk about George Eliot, drawing from her current AHRC-funded research project, “Provincialism: Literature and the Cultural Politics of Middleness in Nineteenth-Century Britain.”
In May, Professor Juliet John discussed Charles Dickens as part of an episode of BBC Radio 4’s Front Row on “Icons of English Literature.” You can listen to the programme here (https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0004s95).
Also in May, Dr Katie McGettigan took part in a discussion about three great American writers born in 1819 – Herman Melville, Walt Whitman and Julia Ward Howe – on BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking. You can listen to the programme here (https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0004s4y).
