Call for papers: 19th c. Research Seminars

The 19th Century Research Seminars (NCRS) will take place at the Institute for Advanced Studies of the Humanities, University of Edinburgh, January - May 2014.

Organised by postgraduate students, this monthly seminar series seeks to provide a cross- and inter-disciplinary space in which doctoral researchers and early career researchers working on the 19th century can meet, discuss their research, form connections and sow the seeds for future collaborations.

Each seminar will consist of two papers: one paper from a University of Edinburgh-based researcher and one from a researcher based in any other higher education institution.

20-minute papers

The seminar conveners invite proposals for 20-minute papers addressing any aspect of 19th century literature, history, and culture from doctoral researchers and early career researchers only.

Abstracts of 250 words

Abstracts of no more than 250 words along with the name, brief biography (<100 words) and institutional affiliation of the speaker should be submitted in the body of an email (link below).

Deadline 31 October 2013

The closing date for submissions is Thursday 31 October 2013.


NCRS will reimburse travel expenses of up to £100 for those non-University of Edinburgh speakers who are selected.

The series is supported by the University of Edinburgh's Researcher-Led Initiative Fund.

Seminar conveners

Tim Cooper, Muireann Crowley, Lucy Linforth, Shannon Rollins
