We welcome proposals for fifteen-minute papers on any aspect of literature, culture, art, and history in the long nineteenth century. We encourage papers from graduate students, MA students, ECRs, art historians and researchers from a range of fields.
Themes may include, but are not limited to:
- Media and technology
- Art, architecture, and aesthetics
- Social and cultural history
- Production of literary cultures
- Gender and sexuality
- Performance and spectacle
- Religion and ethics
- Representations of empire
The conference is intended as a cross- and inter-disciplinary forum where postgraduate researchers working on any aspect of the long nineteenth century can present and discuss their research in a supportive and stimulating environment.
Please send abstracts of 200 words, along with a short biography (50 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 28th November 2019. The committee will confirm your inclusion in the programme shortly after that date.
We look forward to reading through the submissions!
