Charlotte Bronte at 200 – A Look Back

October 26, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

2016 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of Britain’s greatest writers, Charlotte Brontë. The country has been awash with celebrations to mark the bicentenary including a birthday party for Charlotte in her village of Haworth, numerous documentaries, plays and exhibits, even a re-enactment of Charlotte’s wedding.

It does not come as any surprise that Charlotte should encourage such degrees of celebration. There does not seem to be a year that has gone by since the publication of Jane Eyre in 1847 when something ‘Brontë-esque’ was not produced.

Dr Jonathon Shears and Brontë scholar Kimberley Braxton from Keele University will explore the contemporary reception and influence of Charlotte Brontë’s novels, looking at a range of reviews, films, documentaries, comedy sketches and even erotic retellings! It will be a true celebration of Brontë and what she has come to mean to us all in the past 200 years.
