Wednesday 23rd November, Arts 103 (Constance Naden), 5pm-7pm
This event will facilitate informal discussion about the relationship between poetry and the visual arts across the long nineteenth century, speaking to the particular research interests of members of the Nineteenth-Century Centre across the Department of English Literature and the Department of Art History, Curating and Visual Studies. Attendees are encouraged to bring along poems and related images, such as illustrations accompanying poetry collections, and paintings evoking poems. We will reflect on these connections, encouraging the sharing of ideas across departments and disciplines. Its informal format allows room for opening up these discussions beyond academics whose expertise lies in this area specifically and encourages PGRs to participate and share examples of their own without having to commit to full research papers.
