New Seminar Group: ‘Victorian Persistence: Text, Image, Theory’, Paris

Victorian Persistence: Text, Image, Theory
New Seminar Group
Start Date: 6pm, Wednesday 9th November
Université Paris Diderot

The present-day globalization of Victorian writing can be traced back to the extraordinary plasticity of its textual and visual forms, as it travels from place to place and media to media. Such temporal, geographical, cultural and intermedial persistence is to be the subject of a seminar which will consider the resistance of literature within the nineteenth-century as well as its survival and rebirth in future times. This seminar will encourage an interdisciplinary approach and will be supervised by Sara Thornton, Professor of English studies at Paris Diderot.

The seminar will be held at the Université Paris Diderot and is part of the LARCA research centre. It take place monthly on Wednesdays at 6pm, starting on the 9th of November, at the Université Paris Diderot (room C330, UFR d’Etudes Anglophones Charles V, 10 rue Charles V, 75004 Paris, métro Bastille, Sully Morland or Saint-Paul). The full programme of the seminar will discussed during the introductory session.

All are welcome and refreshments will be served!
