The Almanac Archive

Julia Grandison

Julia Grandison recently received her Ph.D. from the Department of English at the University of Toronto. During her work on time and space in nineteenth-century novels, she became interested in almanacs and their influence on nineteenth-century readers. Her dissertation, "Negotiating Consensus: Reading Time and Space in Nineteenth-Century Novels and Popular Print Genres," considers representations of timing and position in nineteenth-century novels, as well as the ways novelists both appropriated and resisted the influence of the almanac.
