What can new methods tell us about form and style beyond close reading? From sibling sets to the historical study of poetics, each presenter synthesizes a range of texts in order to offer new interpretations of familiar Victorian conventions such as character, vernacular, rhyme, and seriality. Moderated by Sarah Storti.
