Victorian Supernatural Reading Group Autumn Term 2015 details

Our informal, student-run group sets out to consider different ways in which notions of the supernatural were tied in with Victorian ideology. Our definition of the ‘supernatural’ is very broad and we always welcome reading suggestions.

Our first session this term will take place at 7.30pm on Thursday 19 November in room 112, 43 Gordon Square, and is entitled ‘Strangers on a Train: Fear and loathing in Victorian travel fiction’.

We will be reading the following stories, both of which can be accessed online:
– Rhoda Broughton, ‘Under the Cloak’ (1873):
– Katherine Mansfield, ‘The Little Governess’ (1920):

Students can join our mailing list by writing to We have a Facebook group as well (Victorian Supernatural Reading Group).
