PREMIS 8 May: Aino Haataja

You are warmly welcome to join us for the last PREMIS session of this spring on 8 May, 16-18 in Panorama, Arken, when doctoral student Aino Haataja will be sharing about her research on the Anglo-Irish author Maria Edgeworth (Jane Austen’s rival!) and the concept of worldliness in her writing, as well as in the writing of some of her contemporaries. In a second part of the seminar, Aino will present an analysis of worldliness and sociability in Edgeworth’s work Ormond (1817), set in the context of research on Romantic-period sociability and a Habermasian public sphere more generally. A poster for the event can be viewed here.

NB. For the purpose of fuelling conversation in the seminar, Aino is kindly asking you to read chapters 14 and 15 of Ormond online (The Literature Network), if schedules allow: http://www.online-literature.com/maria-edgeworth/ormond/14/.
