Award-winning biographer Professor Kathryn Hughes will be leading this year's Victorian Studies Annual Lecture, entitled ‘The Mysterious Case of George Eliot’s Right Hand’, at 5.15pm in the Peter Williams Lecture Theatre on Wednesday 20 November.

Professor Hughes is an award-winning author, literary journalist, broadcaster and lecturer who appears regularly on BBC Radio 4 and in the Guardian’s review pages.

Her subject, George Eliot, is the venerated author of such classics as Middlemarch, Silas Marner and The Mill on the Floss.

George Eliot - real name Mary Ann Evans - helped to define what we understand today as the archetypal Victorian novel. She developed realist modes of writing to tell compelling and challenging stories that still engage readers today.

The lecture will be free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided after the talk.
