Megan Nash, a PhD candidate in English at the University of Sydney, will present "Eyes on the Page: The Science of Vision and the Visual Phenomenon of Reading in Dickens’s Weeklies and Novels.” 

 

Presented by the interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Study Group

This interdisciplinary study group welcomes scholars of the nineteenth century from across the Sydney area and is frequently joined by international visitors. Nineteenth-century studies is a particularly rich field for interdisciplinary work, drawing together resources from art and theatre history, anthropology, cultural geography, history, literary studies, philosophy, and postcolonial studies. Our explorations of the variegated nineteenth-century corpus combine close textual and visual analysis with attention to the historical and cultural contexts of artistic and intellectual production. Meetings, which take place several times per semester, are collaborative and informal, providing opportunities to deliver papers, workshop works-in-progress, and otherwise share knowledge about texts, images, and theory from our common field.
