Dr. Tess Chakkalakal, Associate Professor of Africana Studies and English at Bowdoin College, will examine how the political influence of wives in the United States has long been a feature of sentimental fiction. Her talk will explore the limits and possibilities of women’s political influence through works of U.S. sentimental fiction, from the antislavery novels of Harriet Beecher Stowe to the anti-segregation fiction of Charles W. Chesnutt.
