Registration Open: ‘Transgression, Trespassing and Taboos in the Long-Nineteenth Century’

Registration is now open for the interdisciplinary, postgraduate conference ‘Transgression, Trespassing and Taboos in the Long-Nineteenth Century’ to be held at Cardiff University on 10th April 2013.

The long-nineteenth century (1789-1914) is a unique period for the study of transgression, and the multiplicity of genres and media in the long-nineteenth century emphasises the need to approach this period from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Capitalising upon current trends in historiography and literary studies, this one-day interdisciplinary postgraduate conference is organised by the School of English, Communication and Philosophy (ENCAP), and the School of History, Archaeology and Religion (SHARE). The conference will feature papers by postgraduate research students from multiple academic disciplines, reflecting current research trends and demonstrating the value of sharing expertise from different disciplines to further understanding in this area

We are delighted to have a broad range of papers considering many different forms of transgression in the long-nineteenth century. The confirmed keynote addresses will be given by Dr Harry Cocks (Nottingham) and Dr Heather Worthington (Cardiff). Please find the provisional programme for the day, conference poster and registration form on the conference website: http://cardiff.ac.uk/ugc/transgression-trespassing-and-taboos-in-the-long-nineteenth-century

To attend this free conference please complete the registration form (available on the website) by Friday 29th March and return electronically to transgression2013@cardiff.ac.uk
