Representation of the British Suffrage Movement

Representation of the British Suffrage MovementYou have no idea how long I’ve been sitting on this, but last week I sent off the manuscript so I’m pretty confident it’s going to happen!

Representation of the British Suffrage Movement will be published by Bloomsbury in early 2015 as part of the Corpus and Discourse series. It goes without saying that I’m very pleased to be bringing suffragists, suffragettes, direct action, Deleuze and Guattari, issues of newsworthiness, and arson to the world in time for the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918.

  1. I am really looking forward to reading your book! My friend, Claire Bourne, is friends with your partner, and Claire pointed me to your post. My first book was on feminist narrative ethics in suffrage-era British novels but I’m now working on something closer to your field: a study of typefaces used in British suffragist journals, books, and ephemera. If you’d be interested in a conversation you can reach me at ksnash@vcu.edu. Otherwise, I’ll just wait impatiently to read your book in early 2015.

    • Thanks for getting in touch! Your work sounds really interesting – I don’t work with suffrage-produced material itself, but I think there’s a chapter in the book that you’ll be interested in. Obviously I can’t send you the manuscript itself, but I’ll be happy to send you the chapter outlines if you’d like them.

  2. Congratulations! What fabulous news, and so very timely, ju-jitsu suffragist.
