RECOVERIES: Revisiting the Long Nineteenth Century
A one-day postgraduate conference at The University of Nottingham, UK Thursday, 7 April 2011
Deadline for registration: 4 March
Keynote speakers: Professor Josephine Guy, The University of Nottingham and Professor John Whale, University of Leeds
Some would say it has been the business of recent literary and historical scholarship to recover ‘lost,’ ‘forgotten’ or ‘misunderstood’ 19th-century cultures, and in turn offer a new understanding of the period. This one-day interdisciplinary conference will focus on this scholarly practice from the perspective of author-driven recuperations. Recoveries seeks to explore the grounds upon which we recuperate and revalue nineteenth-century authors, and reflect upon how this practice (re)shapes our understanding of nineteenth-century cultures. The deadline for registration is 4 March, 2011. More details can be found in our website: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/~aezweb/conference/doku.php?id=recoveries:home The programme is available here. This event is supported by BAVS.
