For several years now the Nineteenth-Century Studies Seminar has brought together national and international C19th scholars through its regular seminars, symposia, and a postgraduate conference. The regular seminars are well-attended by postgraduates, university lecturers both within and outside the University of London, and sometimes by interested members of the public. Our speakers are mainly from the field of C19th literary studies, but the seminars are frequently interdisciplinary in nature and have recently been informed by cultural studies, media history, and art history.

Previous seminar topics include: Refugees, Renegades and Misrepresentation: British Responses to the Paris Commune during the 1870s, Between Mudie’s and the British Museum: 1890s Bloomsbury and the Imagination of Literary Production, Dion Boucicault and the Adaptive Age and Managing time: Virtuosity, Dion Boucicault and Michael Flatley.

The Nineteenth-Century Studies Seminars will start from 3 November 2017, but to find out information on the seminars for the 2017/18 academic year, you can follow the link to the IES website or go directly to the seminar schedule.
