Becky Spence and Amanda Vernon explore Victorian fiction

Becky Spence is working on a PhD which sets nineteenth-century literature in conversation with contemporaneous scientific and philosophical thought, and argues for an associative relationship between listening and sympathy in the nineteenth-century novel.

Amanda Vernon is working on a PhD on the relationship between theology and literary form in the work of novelist, theologian, and literary critic George MacDonald, and demonstrates how MacDonald’s theological approach to literary criticism made him a distinctive contributor to this emergent field.
