Join us for a panel discussion on Greg Vargo's An Underground History of Early Victorian Fiction: Chartism, Radical Print Culture, and the Social Problem Novel, a book that challenges long-held assumptions about the cultural separation between the “two nations” of rich and poor in the Victorian era. Comments on the book will be offered by panelists, followed by hands-on letterpress printing led by MC Hyland (PhD Candidate, NYU). Featuring Lauren M.E. Goodlad (Professor, Department of English, Rutgers University), Anne Humpherys (Professor, Department of English, Lehman College & the Graduate Center CUNY), and Greg Vargo (author, Assistant Professor, Department of English, NYU). Moderated by Jonathan Franklin (PhD Candidate, Department of English, NYU).
