- Professor Lissa Paul will speak on the intriguing life of British author, Eliza Fenwick, whose works include Secresy; or The Ruin on the Rock as well as several children’s books and an extensive letter collection featuring Charles and Mary Lamb, William Godwin, and Mary Wollstonecraft. Paul’s talk will explore the life of Fenwick, including the chase for the plot of her story, likening it to a murder mystery and the game of Clue. Ms. Fenwick can be situated within three-degrees of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The narrative arc of Eliza Fenwick’s life reads as an adventure-romance as well as a mystery story. For her talk, Dr. Paul will focus on Fenwick’s life in Barbados as an abolitionist slave-holder.
