Strange International Fortunes of ‘Character’

Project Status: Current
People Involved: Julian Murphet

Scientia Professor Julian Murphet's project concentrates on the study of the strange international fortunes of ‘character’ (in fiction, drama, cinema and poetry) in the early twentieth century, focusing in particular on the ways in which representations of personhood were radically altered in relation to sociological, economic, political, and evolving aesthetic pressures.
