Hello, friends, Romans, and lovers of the creative, historical, queer, and macabre!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my attempted cabinet of curiosities. For anyone who may have stumbled across this blog and might be wondering who I am, my name is Emily, I’m a writer and researcher based in the UK (particularly around Brighton, Chichester, Portsmouth, and Bournemouth), and I like knitting and cabaret and folklore and anything vintage.
I’m interested in a pretty diverse range of subjects, and try to write about them all when I get the chance – art, literature, history, medical humanities, politics, feminism, LGBT+ issues, mental health, critical theory, crime and punishment.
This list is pretty long, so I thought it might be helpful to create a little introduction of some of my favourite bits and pieces I’ve worked on over the last few months.
Let me know what you think!
Arts and humanities communication:
I’m also working on a project which is attempting to find and celebrate ‘Patient Publications’. Please check out the poster below for more information, and feel free to circulate it to anyone you think might be interested!
I’m also supporting the #RememberFanny Campaign, a project in which we’re working to create a proper commemoration for the Pre-Raphaelite muse Fanny Cornforth to ensure she doesn’t get forgotten. Find out more about the project here: Join Team #RememberFanny!
We have a load of great rewards for those who support the campaign, including badges and signed books. Join the team here: Fanny Cornforth Remembered GoFundMe.
Got a show, project or subject you’d like me to review, report on or write about? Hit me up at email@example.com or tweet at me @emilyjessturner.
