Project: On Not Reading the Victorian Novel

On Not Reading the Victorian Novel

On Not Reading the Victorian Novel

'On Not Reading the Victorian Novel' aims to challenge the perception of illiteracy in the Victorian novel as a homogenous experience and will consider the representation and significance of characters who are marked as illiterate for a multitude of reasons, such as disability, learning difficulty, lack of access to education, or rejection of education. It will examine the wider significance of illiterate representation in relation to the formal anxieties of the novel, contemporary educational reform and practice, class tensions, and the understanding of disability.
