About this event

George Egerton and the fin de siecle:

This is the first conference dedicated to the life and work of George Egerton, the nom de plume of Mary Chavelita Dunne (1859–1945). Egerton is often discussed in relation to New Woman writing and scholars have tended to focus on her first two short story collections, Keynotes (1893) and Discords (1894). The two-day conference seeks to go beyond these parameters, with the aim of recovering her wider oeuvre and reassessing her wider contribution to fin de siècle and early 20th century literature and drama.
