Barsetshire in Pictures

Following the conclusion of the The Small House at Allington  BIG READ, Dr Ellen Moody gave a talk on ‘Barsetshire in Pictures’ looking at Millais’ illustrations for The Small House at Allington and the wider representation of Barsetshire in illustration and television.

Dr Moody holds a Ph.D in British Literature and taught in American senior colleges for more than 40 years. Since 2013 she has been teaching older retired people at two Oscher Institutes of Lifelong Learning, one attached to American University (Washington, DC) and other to George Mason University (in Fairfax, Va). She is also a literary scholar with specialties in 18th century literature, translation, early modern and women’s studies, film, nineteenth and 20th century literature and of course Trollope. For Trollope she wrote a book on her experiences of reading Trollope on the Internet with others, some more academic style essays, two on film adaptations, the most recent on Trollope’s depiction of settler colonialism: “On Inventing a New Country.”
