‘I wished to tell the truth’: Anne Brontë at 200, a Special Issue of Brontë Studies

Brontë Studies is delighted to announce that it is hosting a Special Issue to celebrate the life and work of Anne Brontë. Led by articles emerging from the Brontë Society’s conference, ‘I wished to tell the truth’: Anne Brontë at 200 that was originally scheduled for 2020 but, due to the pandemic, was reorganised and held online in 2021, the Special Issue presents an ideal opportunity to challenge the long-held perception that the youngest Brontë sibling was the least talented and lacked the genius of her sisters. With Anne Brontë’s marginalisation in mind, potential topics for articles to be explored could include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Relationship between life and art/ Realism and didacticism
  • Feminist politics/ Feminist reassessment/Progressive social and political agenda
  • Attitudes toward childhood – education and development
  • Representation of the Victorian female artist
  • Biographical readings/Representation in bio-fictions
  • Legacy/Afterlives
  • New approaches to understanding and/or reading Anne Brontë

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email the journal’s Co-Editors-in-Chief, Sarah Fanning and Claire O’Callaghan, at [email protected].
