2014 Annual Lecture: Civil Combat in The Eustace Diamonds

October 16, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

Civil Combat in The Eustace Diamonds: Social Status, Property, and the Law is the title of our 2014 Annual lecture, by Andrew Lallier of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Andrew Lallier

Lallier is a Ph.D. candidate in English Literature in the Department of English studying Romantic and Victorian Literature at the University. He is currently working on a dissertation on generically experimental texts by Thomas De Quincey, Charles Dickens, George Eliot and George MacDonald.  His past publications on George Eliot and Anthony Trollope have appeared in the George Eliot Review, George Eliot – George Henry Lewes Studies, and The Fortnightly Review, New Series. Lallier was awarded the 2013 Graduate Trollope Prize for his paper “Battles over bits and diamonds: sanction, pragmatic pursuit and civil society in Trollope’s The Eustace Diamonds.” You may read his winning paper as published in The Fortnightly Review.

As Lallier says: “However one chooses to imagine the sanctioned and the pragmatic in The Eustace Diamonds, it is clear from the text that Trollope imagines society in a state of transition, and thus the relation between the sanctioned and the pragmatic (both of which are necessarily embedded in the social) must necessarily also be changing.”

The Trollope Society’s 2014 Annual Lecture will be held on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at the Center for Fiction, 17 East 47th Street, New York City. Refreshments will be served.
