All are invited to attend a memorial conference in honor of 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 Yale English Department. She was a scholar, teacher, colleague, and friend. Please save May 7-8 for an opportunity to fête Linda in a context that reflects her wishes, honors her legacy, and lauds the publication of her final book!
Please contact Margaret Deli (email@example.com) or Natalie Prizel (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register (free of charge.) Attached is the conference poster
