Reading group: Body Snatching and Unruly Anatomies

Sheffield Gothic are excited to announce our first reading group back after the holidays, where we’ll be looking at Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘The Body Snatcher’ and Sheri Holman’s The Dress Lodger. These delightfully dark stories feature rogue anatomists in desperate pursuit of bodies for their dissection studies.

We’ll be meeting online on Wednesday 9th February from 3-4.30pm and we’d like to warmly invite anyone interested in these texts to join us! Contact us at or on Twitter @SheffieldGothic for access to the readings and the link for the meeting. And don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about the reading group or Sheffield Gothic more generally!
