Murray Published in Review of English Studies

Murray_DouglasProfessor of English Dr. Douglas Murray recently published “Donwell Abbey and Box Hill: Purity and Danger in Jane Austen’s Emma” in Review of English Studies (RES). RES is an internationally-known periodical, the flagship journal of the Oxford University Press and one of the world’s most respected sources of historical criticism. Murray’s essay combines original research into Box Hill in Surrey (site of a famous scene in Emma) with anthropologist Mary Douglas’s theories of clean and dirty spaces.

Murray also presented “Humphrey Repton’s ‘View from my Own Cottage’ and Jane Austen’s Emma: Natives and Nomads” at the 2015 meeting of the British Association for Romantic Studies, held in July in Cardiff, Wales.
