Edinburgh 19th century research seminars

The Edinburgh 19th century research seminars take place regularly throughout the semester and are open to all.

Seminar description

The Nineteenth-Century Research Seminars (NCRS) is a monthly seminar series that provides a cross- and inter-disciplinary forum where postgraduate and early career researchers can meet, form connections, debate and collaborate on all issues pertaining to the long-nineteenth century.

Monthly seminars will consist of 2-3 twenty-minute papers – one paper from a University of Edinburgh-based researcher and at least one paper from a researcher based in another institution – followed by discussion and a reception.

The research seminars are funded by the University of Edinburgh's Student-Led Initiative Fund.
