Next Session - November 19, 2015
For the next session, Sara Silva proposes a discussion on the interrelations between literature and science.
The first part of the meeting will explore the intersections between Charles Darwin’s theory of sexual selection and Edward Bulwer Lytton’s satirical depiction of gender in his utopian novel The Coming Race (1871), disclosing the Victorian fascination with theories of evolution whilst exposing nineteenth-century widespread stereotypes regarding gender.

The second part invites a reflection on sibling rivalry from an evolutionary psychology perspective by analysing a variant of the folktale type ATU 315 - The Faithless Sister, entitled "Clever Daniel". Texts here, here, here and here.
