Writing Westward Podcast
Westerns: A Women's History
A conversation with Victoria Lamont about her book Westerns: A Women's History, published in 2016 by the University of Nebraska Press as part of the "Postwestern Horizons" Series. Lamont studies the early formation of the Western Novel as a genre and uncovers little known histories of women authors who published before and concurrent with male authors like Owen Wister who are often credited with developing the first Western novel. Lamont is an Associate Professor of English and the Associate Chair of Undergraduate Studies at the University of Waterloo.
