Kasia Flisiuk challenges the way an all-girls school has taught her to analyze women in literature. In each episode she explores a new book and theme that challenges women’s representation across genres and times. Episode 4: Gothic, Sexuality and Violence - A Male Academic’s Perspective. Kasia is joined by academic Sam Halliday, from Queen Mary University of London. They dissect the representation of violence against women and violence perpetrated by women in 18th-century novels. Their discussions revolve around two texts, both authored by women: Ann Radcliffe's The Mysteries of Udolpho and Charlotte Dacre's Zofloya. They explore the themes of violence, sexuality, power, and agency within these Gothic texts. Sam guides us through the compelling depiction of violent, masculine women in the novel, challenging traditional notions of femininity. They discuss the implications of these characters and their impact on our understanding of gender roles and expectations. Find Kasia on Instagram @womengetlit and @apolishgalsthoughts.
