MaudCast is the podcast of the L.M. Montgomery Institute. In the MaudCast’s quest to discover cutting edge scholarship about the life and works of Lucy Maud Montgomery, we welcome to the microphone leading academics, emerging scholars, local researchers, and imaginative readers and writers from around the world. Hosted by Dr. Brenton Dickieson, with technical direction from Kristy McKinney, we broadcast from the beautiful campus of the University of Prince Edward Island.


Laura Leden is a PhD candidate in translation studies at the University of Helsinki, working on the final stages of her thesis on adaptation in translations of girls’ fiction from English into Swedish and Finnish, including translations of Montgomery’s Emily trilogy. Alongside her PhD project, she has written several journal articles and book chapters on the translations of Montgomery’s books and been a regular speaker at the L.M. Montgomery conferences for the last ten years.
