A conference hosted by the University of Sheffield, March 26-27
This interdisciplinary conference at the University of Sheffield will address such questions as: how do the images and poetry of the nineteenth century reflect or challenge British and European politics of their day? How do nineteenth-century politics intersect with aesthetics to create new theories and practices of art? What kind of correlation might there be between political representation and the representation of politics in word and image?
Keynote speakers: Malcolm Chase (University of Leeds), Lindsay Smith (University of Sussex), Cornelia Pearsall (Smith College, Massachusetts).
Roundtable Discussion: Mike Sanders (University of Manchester), Bertrand Taithe (University of Manchester), Martina Lauster (University of Exeter)
