I’m excited to announce that I’ve been awarded a Research Funding Award from the British Association for Victorian Studies for research on my project ‘A Literary Inheritance: Family Histories and Textual Afterlives in the Commonplace Books of Ellen Warter’. The project takes as its starting point two commonplace books made by Ellen Warter, the granddaughter of the Romantic poet Robert Southey, around 1885, now housed in the Centre for Research Collections at the University of Edinburgh, and will situate these in relation to the domestic literary and material practices of her family, as well as the later nineteenth-century practice of compiling Brontëana. The BAVS Research Funding Award will allow me to conduct crucial primary research for this project in the collections of the Brontë Parsonage Museum, where I’ll examine their significant collection of Brontëana.
