Who:Dr Susan Cahill, School of Canadian Irish Studies, Concordia University
Venue:Room 137 Robert Webster Building
When:26 Jun 2012, 4pm - 5:30pm

This paper explores the proliferation of fiction aimed at girls, written by Irish women between 1870-1920 such as L.T. Meade, Rosa Mulholland, Flora Shaw, and J.M Callwell. Despite its contemporary popularity, this is a literature that is critically neglected, due perhaps to its middle-class, young, female audience; its associations with popular culture; and its Victorian outlook, at odds with the literary project of the Irish Literary Revival.
