Foundations in Black Victorian Studies

Jennifer DeVere Brody (Stanford University) and Gretchen Holbrook Gerzina (University of Massachusetts Amherst), two scholars whose research has profoundly shaped the study of Blackness in the Victorian period and the contributions of Black Victorian writers, discuss the legacy of this work over the last two decades and possible directions for the future.

This event was part of a week of discussions for the Virtual Dickens Universe conference in preparation for the 2021 Dickens Universe conference featuring David Copperfield and Iola Leroy.
