Female maladies, medical and literary culture in the long 19th century

We will look at how writers of fiction portrayed deviant and/or difficult women and how society, including the medical profession, punished, chastised or managed these transgressive characters. Texts will be Mary Wollstonecraft’s unfinished novel Maria, Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper and Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Case of Lady Sannox.

There will be no meeting on Friday 2 November.
