Papers will explore the dual senses of ‘antipodean’ as ‘Australasian’ and ‘in opposition to’, ranging across her writings from her earliest publication, a poem in the Christian Observer, to her challenging final work, Impressions of Theophrastus Such, in contexts that include Brexit, music, nineteenth-century science, and Bengali fiction.
