Change of Venue

In solidarity with the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain boycott of Senate House regarding the outsourcing of their staff, we have changed the venue of the conference to Arts Two Lecture Theatre, Mile End Campus, Queen Mary University.

Be assured that there will be no change regarding speakers or schedule, but unfortunately we will no longer be able to provide lunch. We advise that attendees provide their own lunch, or make use of the many food options on or around the Queen Mary campus.

Please can you continue to register to the conference through the IES website.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

London Nineteenth-Century Graduate Conference 2019

The sixth London Nineteenth-Century Studies Graduate Conference will feature a diverse range of perspectives from literary studies to visual arts, global history, and material and popular cultures.

The conference is intended as a cross- and inter-disciplinary forum where postgraduate researchers working on any aspect of the long nineteenth century can present and discuss their research in a supportive and stimulating environment. Welcoming graduate researchers from a variety of institutions, the 2019 conference promises to be a bold and innovative exploration of the nineteenth century.

We are excited to welcome two exceptional speakers to this year’s conference.
Professor Regenia Gagnier (University of Exeter) will deliver the keynote address: ‘Global Circulation and the Long Nineteenth Century’.
The plenary paper will be given by Dr. Flora Willson (King’s College, London): ‘Listening for internationalism: Nellie Melba and the idea of global opera at the end of the long 19th century’.

Registration is free, though booking is essential. The conference has been generously funded by the London Nineteenth Century Studies Seminar, which meets regularly at the IES throughout the year.

Registration can be completed here.
