About Nicole Entin
I am a Scholar from the 2022 cohort at the University of St Andrews, pursuing an MA (Joint Hons) in English and Art History. My areas of interest include nineteenth and early twentieth century art and literature, with a particular focus on the Victorian and Modernist periods.
My Laidlaw research and leadership project is on 'Alfred Tennyson's Idylls of the King and Other Poems Illustrated by Julia Margaret Cameron: challenges to gender roles and tradition in the formation of Victorian artistic and literary legacies.' This interdisciplinary project will present the overlooked contributions of a female photographer in one of the most dynamic transitory periods in art and literature, and work with resources in the University Special Collections. Using Cameron's edition of Tennyson's Idylls as a case study that focuses on the female gaze as a 'translator' of the male poetic voice, this project aims to understand how this work challenged traditional views of art, literature, and gender roles.
