The PGR/ECR Long Nineteenth Century Seminar


This free hybrid event is the latest in a new research seminar series hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University. In order to foster collaboration within the field of long-nineteenth century studies, our presentations offer opportunities to discuss cutting-edge approaches and findings to key topics of concern during a period of immense change that continues to inspire reflection.

Join us in a large, socially distanced, lecture theatre in the Business School at Manchester Metropolitan University, or online, for a musical extravaganza featuring:
