Resistance in the Long-Nineteenth Century

Francoise Baillet (Caen Normandie University)
Author Biography:

Françoise Baillet is a Professor of British History and Visual Studies at Caen Normandie University, France. Her research generally addresses the Victorian illustrated press as a discursive and ideological construct and, over the past few years, has mainly focused on aestheticized renderings of working-class life in The Illustrated London News and The Graphic. Her current project concerns the Punch archive at the British Library, and in particular the Bradbury & Evans financial papers (ledgers and manuscripts).
