Call for Papers – 19CC Postgraduate Symposium

The University of Birmingham Nineteenth-Century Centre is delighted to share the Call for Papers for our Postgraduate Symposium taking place on Monday, 15th May 2023.

The Postgraduate Symposium will be an opportunity for students to come together in a low-pressure environment to hear about and celebrate the fantastic and diverse work that’s being undertaken by postgraduates in the centre, as well as gaining some useful advice from staff in a couple of professional development workshops during the day. It is also a great opportunity to gain some valuable presenting experience and receive constructive feedback from peers.

We invite proposals for short papers (approx. 10-15 minutes) that can be as formal or informal as you wish – a work-in-progress talk or summary of your current research, for instance, or a more specific conference-style paper. We encourage submissions from all postgraduate taught and research students from any disciplinary background working on any aspect of the long nineteenth century.

Abstracts (max. 200 words) should be submitted to, and you can get in touch with any questions or concerns at the same email address.

Deadline for submissions is Friday, 31st March 2023.
