19CC Semester Two: Other Events

19CC Postgraduate Symposium (Early May)

This term, we will be running a 19CC Postgraduate Symposium. Provisionally scheduled for early May, the PG Symposium will be a chance for postgrads to get together in a low-pressure environment and hear about the work that’s being done by members of the centre, as well as gaining some useful advice from staff in a couple of informal professional development sessions during the day. It is also a great opportunity to gain some presenting experience that will be invaluable when presenting at conferences and other events. The CFP will be circulated soon, and in the meantime do get in touch with any queries or concerns at 19cc@contacts.bham.ac.uk.

Sites of Feeling Symposium (Late May)

Colleagues from across UoB will share papers at an in-person symposium on campus at the end of May.

Public Lecture

Dr Clare Bucknell will talk about the role of anthologies in nineteenth-century culture. More details soon!

As always, any questions or concerns, do get in touch with us at 19cc@contacts.bham.ac.uk. We look forward to seeing you all for what promises to be a brilliant semester of events in the 19CC.
