News and events

The Centre for Victorian Studies organises a range of seminars and conferences throughout the academic year, as well as public events designed to engage the wider community in Victorian literature and culture. The latest news of our projects and publications can also be found in this section.

Renowned for its national and international events, some of which have attracted the sponsorship of the British Academy and other funding bodies, the Centre fosters collaborative ventures and creates opportunities for joint events between Victorian centres and institutions, most notably the Royal Holloway Centre for Victorian Studies (University of London), the Birkbeck Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies (University of London) and the Dickens Project (University of California).

Major international conferences organised include the Victorian Europeans conference, co-organised with the Royal Holloway Centre for Victorian Studies, and the multidisciplinary conference on The Verbal and The Visual with the Birkbeck Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies.
