Like every year, we shall celebrate Violet Paget’s birth-day on October 14, 2020. This year’s Vernon Lee event will be Dustin Friedman’s online lecture, and is entitled: “‘Sinister Exile’: Queer Myth and Aesthetic Teleology in Walter Pater and Vernon Lee.”
I am delighted to share with you the registration link to the IVLS Lecture, October 14, 2020 at 18.30 (UK time). Registration is free, and you do not need to be a member to register, so please share with anyone who may be interested.
