NENC postgraduate symposium ‘Moving Towards Science in the Long Nineteenth Century’

NENC postgraduate symposium ‘Moving Towards Science in the Long Nineteenth Century’

A reminder that registration for the NENC postgraduate symposium ‘Moving Towards Science in the Long Nineteenth Century’ closes on Saturday 8 September.

The symposium will be held at the Literary and Philosophical Society on Wednesday 12 September. Our guest speakers are Dr Peter Garratt (Northumbria University), Professor David Knight (Durham University), and Professor Jennifer Richards and Dr Anne Whitehead (Newcastle University). Ranging across the early modern period to the end of the long nineteenth century in their areas of specialisation, our guest speakers will consider in particular how they have approached or made use of scientific discourses in their own research. This will provide delegates with an opportunity to gain insight into some of the methodological and theoretical benefits and challenges of a turn towards science.

Registration

The symposium is free to attend, and all are welcome. To register your place, please email:

movingtowardsscience@gmail.com with your title, name, institutional affiliation, any dietary or access requirements, and whether you would like to reserve a place at the conference dinner, to be held in Newcastle city centre after the event.

The full programme can be viewed on our website under the ‘Moving Towards Science’ tab.
