Alice Pedersen presents at the British Women Writers Conference


IAS faculty member Alice Pedersen attended the British Women Writers Conference in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where she gave a talk entitled "What Tangled Skeins: Ann Radcliffe, Harriet Jacobs, and Genealogies of Feminist Writing," which explored the similarities between the British, 18th-century novelist Ann Radcliffe's scenes of maternal incarceration with those that appear in the 19th century slave narrative Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, by Harriet Jacobs.
