Radicalism and Reform in the Nineteenth-Century: London Victorian Studies Colloquium
26th Apr 2019 - 27th Apr 2019
This year's London Victorian Studies Colloquium will take place April 26-27 2019 at Royal Holloway. It is open to all postgraduate students and ECRs from any discipline with interests in the long nineteenth century. Techne funded students are able to attend for free.
The Colloquium is an informal two days, combining postgraduate papers, training and professionalisation workshops, and time for networking in the beautiful Victorian surroundings of Royal Holloway.
This year, the colloquium seeks to explore the themes of Radicalism and Reform in the Long Nineteenth Century. The event will include:
• Plenary talks from Dr Carol Jacobi (Curator of British Art, 1850-1915, Tate Britain) and Dr Helen Goodman (Bath Spa University)
• Research Beyond the Article with Professor Redell Olsen (RHUL) and Dr Joanna Taylor (Manchester)
• Panel Discussion on Academic Careers and the Place of ECRs in the University
• Training in Nineteenth-Century Collections and Designing Innovative Teaching
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and the colloquium is open to Masters, doctoral students and postdocs from the UK or abroad, working on any nineteenth-century topic.
Participants do not have to give papers, but we do seek proposals for a small number of 15-20 minute papers on interdisciplinary topics related to the conference theme. These may include, but are in no way limited to:
- Reforming Movements: Theosophy, the Salvation Army, women’s movements, animal rights, prison reform, law reform
