Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti: Victorian Women Poets and the Idea of a Savior

Wednesday, June 12, 2019
1:15pm – 2:45pm

Depot Campus

Come learn with the Center for Learning in Retirement and Frederick Roden, UConn Professor of English, Stamford Curriculum Coordinator for English and Stamford Liaison for Judaic Studies.

Poems by these 19th-century women created images of a female Christ, as did a feminist tract by Florence Nightingale. Learn how literature and religion shaped Victorian culture in a time of tremendous social change when the notion of salvation inspired women’s emancipation.
