The Nineteenth Century Research Seminars (NCRS) invites proposals for twenty-minute papers addressing any aspect of nineteenth century literature, history, and culture from doctoral researchers and early career researchers.
Papers might consider, but are by no means restricted to the following topics:
Material, print and visual cultures
Science and medicine
History (alternative histories/ hidden histories/ sub-histories)
Cultural/ Urban geography
Romance/ Romanticism / Revival
Revolution and reform
The seminar series provides a cross- and inter-disciplinary space in which doctoral researchers and early career researchers working on the nineteenth century can meet, discuss their research, form connections, and sow the seeds for future collaborations.
Each seminar will consist of two papers: one paper from a University of Edinburgh-based researcher and one paper from a researcher based in another higher education institution. Non-University of Edinburgh speakers’ travel expenses will be reimbursed up to £50. NCRS will take place at the Institute for Advanced Studies of the Humanities (IASH) in the University of Edinburgh on a monthly basis from January to May 2015.
Abstracts of up to 250 words along with a brief biography and institutional affiliation should be submitted in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for submissions is Friday 28 November 2014.
The NCRS is supported by the University of Edinburgh’s Student-Led Initiative Fund.
