Linda Fleming gives a paper at the annual conference of the Australasian Victorian Studies Association

In February, Linda FLeming  was funded by the British Academy to give a paper at the annual conference of the Australasian Victorian Studies Association, which this year was hosted by the University of Otago in New Zealand. Her paper entitled, The Radical Sensitivities of Marion Bernstein, was given in conjunction with Professor Ed Cohen of Rollins College, Florida. This presentation revealed new evidence about the life and writing of Bernstein, who has become well known to literary scholars and women’s historians interested in the evolution of feminist writing in nineteenth century Scotland. The conference was attended by representatives of departments of literature and Victorian studies from across Australasia, as well as those intrepid travellers who came from many parts of Europe and North America. All enjoyed the excellent conference facilities provided within the Museum of Otago in Dunedin, and for some first time visitors like LF, an introduction to the terrific hospitality afforded by the city known as the Edinburgh of the south!
