The next and final Birkbeck Forum for Nineteenth-Century Studies event of the term will feature Alison Booth (Virginia) presenting on "A Network of Trollopes, an Italy of Women: Historical Biography, Nationhood, and Events" from 6:00-8:00pm on Monday 10 June 2013.
Frances Trollope, Thomas Adolphus Trollope, and his wives, Theodosia Garrow Trollope and Frances Eleanor Trollope, all writers, create a cluster of events marriage, correspondence, publication, travel, death in their international circles in Italy. This talk traces their network through A Decade of Italian Women and other collective biographies that emerged from the conjunction of interest in 'Italian' women and in resurgent Italy. Professor Booth will also talk about her database, Collective Biographies of Women and its prototype 'work station', and methodology.
