I’ve discovered a new potential friend: Alexandra Abletshauser at the University of Glasgow. I haven’t yet asked her is we could share information with each other, but she did tell me I could repost her guest blog on Transatlantic Literary Women blog, Sui Sin Far and the Making of the Chinese North American Identity, so here it is. Note the description of Alexandra at the end. You can see why our projects need to collaborate…

Alexandra’s research focuses on English- and French-Canadian prose writing from 1880 to 1914. She examines how Canadian women writers use emotions to manipulate readers’ responses to political and social issues, such as women’s suffrage, alcoholism and temperance. Alexandra is also a Hunterian Associate at The Hunterian Museum in Glasgow where she explores the biographies of Native North American artefacts.
