The MMU PGR ECR Long Nineteenth Century Symposium


Symposium – 16 June 2022, 4 pm BST | Call for Papers, deadline – 25 April 2022

Our symposium will feature three cross disciplinary panels, consisting of 3-4 fifteen minute presentations, followed by a Q&A session.

In order to foster collaboration across the post-graduate community within the field of the long nineteenth century, this event seeks to explore some of the cross-thematic research priorities at the centre of doctoral studies. Each of these three panels offer opportunities to present and discuss cutting-edge approaches and findings to key topics of concern during a period of immense change that continues to inspire reflection.

We invite presentations from any discipline that concerns the long nineteenth century within these three general themes:

  • Long Nineteenth-Century Ecologies and Environment
  • Global and Trans-National Cultural Exchange in the Long Nineteenth Century
  • Reinterpreting the Long Nineteenth Century (Literature/Visual Cultures, etc.)

We welcome presenters of all backgrounds. The conference will take the format of short 15 minute papers, and each panel will contain a Q&A session with time for lots of discussion.Please send short abstracts of no more than 250 words, as well as a short biography, by Monday 25th April.
