Caroline Blyth

Caroline gave a great seminar on the 17th of November. She presented her paper on Delilah, ‘The Delilah Monologues’ in a truly unique and engaging fashion. Caroline took on the persona of Delilah, giving Delilah speech and thought. As the title of the paper indicates, it was delivered in first person by Caroline who as well as being a lovely person and a fantastic scholar is also a great actress! For more on Caroline, follow this link for a recent Hidden Perspectives interview with her and see some of the fab pics below from Caroline’s seminar.
