Speaker: Professor Stevie Davies
Lecture title: Emily Bronte and the Mother World

Time: 3.45 pm-5.30 pm
Venue: The Discovery Room, Swansea Central Library, Civic Centre, Oystermouth Road, Swansea
Admission: Admission is free, but seating is limited so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Lecture summary: In an age of amateur biologists and zoologist, Emily Bronte came to her own defiant conclusions about the relations between humanity and creaturely life. Stevie Davies, author of four critical and biographical books on Bronte will consider Wuthering Heights and her poetry in the light of her heretical observations and Darwin’s jottings in early notebooks.
