Colloquia and Working Groups

Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Colloquium

The English Department’s Graduate Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Colloquium meets several times a semester and pursues research specific to the eighteenth century, Romanticism, and Victorianism, as well as projects that cross historical boundaries. Programming includes presentations of work-in-progress by graduate students and faculty; outside speakers presenting their new work; and panel discussions on topics  of current theoretical, methodological, or pedagogical importance.
