Description

Working in the past inside fiction: Sarah Dunant in conversation with Janet Beer

Sarah Dunant is a prolific writer, broadcaster and critic. She made her name as a feminist crime writer, and has since become an international bestseller with her Italian historical novels The Birth of Venus, In the Company of the Courtesan, Sacred Hearts and Blood and Beauty, translated into more than thirty languages.

Trained as an historian, she is passionate about the interface between history, art history and fiction, believing that fiction can illuminate a whole new past focusing on fragments of information about forgotten groups (women and slaves) and issues ignored by formal historical studies (sexuality and emotion). She believes this is a golden age for historical fiction, and will discuss this and her work with Liverpool Vice Chancellor, Professor Janet Beer.
