Wednesday, October 24, 6:00 pm
‘Tis the season of death and murder, so join us for this follow-up event to last year’s popular “She-Demons” lecture, presented by Dr. Cheryl Blake Price, Assistant Professor of English at UNA. Dr. Price will discuss some famous cases of medical poisoners which occurred in nineteenth-century England. A spate of poisoning doctor cases, beginning in the 1850s, raised public fears that doctors could indiscriminately poison their clients. In reality, however, doctors were much more likely to murder those closest to them—especially their wives. Victorian authors realized the threat the poisoning-doctor posed to those in the home, and began incorporating this character into their writing as a way of exploring the growing power the field of medicine was exerting over the domestic sphere.
