The Ladies North: Ulster Women Writers and the Representation of Norway
Dalarna University, School of Humanities and Media Studies, English.
2016 (English)Conference paper, (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper will present three Ulster women writers, Frances Browne (1817-79), Kathleen Coyle (1886-1952), and Constance Malleson (1895-1975), who, during the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth century, published books depicting life in the Nordic countries. In particular, the three northern Irish writers variously represented Norway and Norwegian culture in fiction – Browne’s "The Ericksons" (1852), Coyle’s "Liv" (1928) – and travel/life writing – Malleson’s "In the North" (1946), via publishers in Edinburgh and London. Consequently this paper will examine ways in which each writer engages productively with concepts of Northerness - traditional and modern, distinct and dialectic - through the depiction of Norwegian life. Ultimately this paper aims to contribute new perceptions on the unique literary contributions of Ulster women writers, to a wider discourse of Northerness and northern identities.
