George Egerton and the Fin de Siecle Conference

About this event

A two-day conference organised by the Cultural Currents (1870-1930) Research Group at Loughborough University, and supported by the British Association for Victorian Studies.

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 tend to focus on her first two short story collections, Keynotes (1893) and Discords (1894). This conference goes 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.
