The 18th and 19th-Century Colloquium of the Yale English Department invites all to a conference celebrating Victorian Women Writers in honor of Linda Peterson.
Saturday, May 7– Sunday, May 8, 2016 at Yale University
The memorial conference is in honor of a late colleague, Linda Peterson, on May 7-8, 2016, in celebration of her final publication, The Cambridge Companion to Victorian Women’s Writing, to be hosted by the 18-19th Century Colloquium. A member of the Yale community for 38 years, Linda was a scholar of Victorian prose and an authority on life writing; she served as English chair for seven years, helped shape Yale’s undergraduate writing program, and profoundly enhanced the scope and tenor of the department. She was a scholar, teacher, colleague, and friend. Please save the date for an opportunity to fête Linda in a context that reflects her wishes, honors her legacy, and lauds the publication of her final book.
