|Nineteenth Century Research Group||
The Nineteenth Century Group at Rutgers focuses primarily on British literature of the Victorian and Romantic periods. Our recent events include dissertation and publication workshops, guest speakers and panels on nineteenth-century topics, discussions of new work in the field, and events concerning methodological developments in the discipline.
We encourage interdisciplinary and cross-geographic boundary approaches to the period, and we direct our discussions every year around a particular theme. Each fall we organize an interdisciplinary round table discussion that brings together nineteenth-century scholars from across the country to discuss projects related to our theme. In the spring, we collaborate with Princeton to host a graduate conference, providing opportunities for students at any institution to share work and receive relevant feedback.
Please email any of our three co-organizers to be added to the group's Sakai site, receive regular updates from our group, and gain access to the readings.
