Abstract / Summary

Co-hosted by Falmouth University and the Victorian Popular Fiction Association

Keynote Speakers:
William Hughes, Bath Spa University
Andy Smith, University of Sheffield

Villainous, feminised, weak and wanting; men in the sensation genre are often seen as lacking. Critical readings of the genre, moreover, have tended to focus on its constructions of femininity, largely neglecting representations of men and masculinity. Examining the under-explored subject of Victorian men, masculinity and sensation, “Sensational Men: Victorian Masculinity in Sensation Fiction, Theatre and the Arts” represents a timely and important intervention in the field.
This one day symposium at Falmouth University provided scholars working in many different fields such as: popular fiction studies, theatre studies, Gothic studies, art history, early photography and film, theories of gender, sexuality and nation in nineteenth century studies.
