Content warning: Rape and sexual assault will be discussed throughout.


Today is a special episode as I have Dr Julie Taddeo and Dr Katherine Byrne joining me to talk about their 2022 book Rape in Period Drama Television: Consent, Myth, and Fantasy. We will be discussing representations of rape in TV shows such as Outlander, Poldark, Harlots, Bridgerton, Banished and more.

Dr Julie Taddeo is a Research Professor of British History at the University of Maryland in the USA. She has published multiple books and articles on topics including the Bloomsbury Group and British modernism; the British novelists Catherine Cookson and Anne Perry; Steampunk; and British period drama TV.
Dr Katherine Byrne teaches English at Ulster University in Northern Ireland, and has published many books and articles about period drama, Victorian literature and medicine, women’s writing, and the Gothic. Thanks again to both of them for joining me!



Apologies for the poor audio quality from my mic, I clearly sat in an area of the house with poor wifi, baby podcaster lesson learned!
