The Nineteenth-Century Study Group
This interdisciplinary study group welcomes interested nineteenth-century scholars from across the University.
The group has two main objectives:
- To cultivate a more consolidated sense of the nineteenth-century research field in the University,
- To encourage interdisciplinary conversation, that can in turn promote a richer sense of the culture of our research period, and lead to new avenues for collaborative research.
We meet svereal times each semester to discuss texts, images and theory from our shared field. Material for discussion is circulated to the group prior to meetings.
All meetings held in the Rogers Room, John Woolley Building A20, from 3-5pm. Coffee and tea provided.
