The London Victorian Studies Colloquium: A Residential Postgraduate Weekend
Royal Holloway Victorian Studies Centre, University of London
Friday 26 April – Sunday 28 April 2013
Supported by the British Association for Victorian Studies (BAVS): www.bavsuk.org and Royal Holloway
The London Victorian Studies Colloquium is a new initiative, a weekend residential colloquium for postgraduates and accompanying staff members working in Victorian Studies to be held at Royal Holloway Victorian Studies Centre on 26-28 April 2013.
This will be a relatively informal weekend of postgraduate papers, reading groups and professionalisation workshops, allowing generous spaces also for participants to socialise and study in the beautiful surroundings of the college. We hope to include a viewing of the Victorian art collection in the Royal Holloway picture gallery.
Priority in the first instance will be given to Victorian students in London and the South East. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and the colloquium is open to Masters and doctoral students. Participants do not have to present a paper or lead a workshop but we will be looking for a small number of speakers to give short papers (20 minutes) or lead reading groups or workshops (on topics such as publication, thesis-writing and career building).
The weekend will be led by Juliet John and Ruth Livesey of Royal Holloway, and Matthew Rubery of Queen Mary, University of London.
+ Please e-mail Professor Juliet John (Juliet.Johnrhul.ac.uk) if you would like to lead a session or present a paper.
The weekend is subsidised, so fees are £70 for weekend residential delegates (including the cost of registration, dinner, B&B) and £52 for the non-resident weekend delegates.
