NENC – Announcements for Autumn Programme 2013


The North East Postgraduate Research Group for the Long Nineteenth Century (NENC) are hosting an introductory session for new members on Monday 14 October at 6pm at Newcastle University (room to be confirmed).

NENC warmly encourages new postgraduates from the North East universities (and further afield) at MA, MLitt, MPhil and PhD level to attend. Current co-organisers will be introducing the research group and its aims, before inviting others to discuss their research interests. We welcome all postgraduates working on any aspect of the literature and culture of the long nineteenth century (c. 1750-1914) to attend, and there will be opportunities to contribute to the organisation of the research group, as well as to lead reading group sessions and give papers.

A prospective plan for the Autumn currently runs as follows:

October – Introductory session (meet and greet with wine reception)

November – Beatrice Turner (Newcastle) will be leading a session at Durham University.

December – Sarah Lill (Northumbria) will be leading a Christmas session at Northumbria University.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
