8th-10th April 2016, Royal Holloway Victorian Studies Centre, University of London
Supported by Royal Holloway Humanities and Arts Research Centre and Department of English
The London Victorian Studies Colloquium is an annual weekend residential colloquium for postgraduates and postdocs working in Victorian Studies, to be held at Royal Holloway Victorian Studies Centre on 8-10 April 2016. This is 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. The colloquium hopes to include a viewing of the Victorian art collection in the Royal Holloway picture gallery.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and the colloquium is open to Masters and doctoral students from the UK or abroad. 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) and to participate in a panel on Impact and external engagement. The weekend will be led by Juliet John, Ruth Livesey and Sophie Gilmartin of Royal Holloway. Please e-mail Professor Juliet John (Juliet.John@rhul.ac.uk) if you would like to lead a session or present a paper.
The weekend is subsidised, so fees are £100 for weekend residential delegates (this is an all-in fee which includes the cost of registration, accommodation, dinner, B&B for the weekend) and £80 for non-resident weekend delegates.
