Harriet Gordon, BA MA (Cardiff) is a doctoral candidate in English Literature at Cardiff University. Her thesis, ‘“At Home in the World”: Robert Louis Stevenson’s Global Literary Networks’, focuses on the global peregrinations of Robert Louis Stevenson, examining the social networks that facilitated his cross-continental publishing and considering the influence of such movements and networks on his textual productions.
As it widest objective, the project aims to examine late nineteenth-century authorship in a global context, whilst considering the relationship between travel/location and literary texts. Her project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW-DTP). In this ongoing series of posts, Harriet discusses various aspects of her research project as it unfolds.
