03/13/2018 - Graves Lecture Series At CSC
The next Grave Lectures Series program will be Dr. Mary Clai Jones on Tuesday, March 13. The presentation begins at 7:00 PM in the Sandoz Center Atrium at Chadron State College and is free and open to the public. Jones is an assistant professor of English and Humanities at Chadron State College. The title of her talk is “Corelli’s Designing Fictions: Fashioning the Woman of Genius.” Marie Corelli was one of Britain’s most popular novelists in the 1800s. Her celebrity, paired with late 19th century technological advancements, launched her onto the public stage; and, her role as an outspoken woman writer within the male dominated literary world, made her a controversial figure. Jones’s presentation will explore the ways in which Marie Corelli’s fiction examines and reimagines gender biases within the masculine space of the published world.
