Jewish Women Writers in Victorian England

Victorian Jewish Women
Nadia Valman studied English at the Universities of Cambridge and Leeds and worked operating the autocue for BBC News before completing her doctorate at Queen Mary. Her research focused on literature and the campaign for Jewish civil rights in Britain in the nineteenth century. This topic led her to discover a number of unknown Victorian Jewish and Christian women writers, and to her first monograph on the figure of the Jewess in nineteenth-century literature. She taught at the University of Southampton for 10 years before returning to Queen Mary in 2007.
