The Long Nineteenth Century Colloquium supports the Northwestern community of 19th century British scholars in their engagement with state-of-the-field discussions across academic disciplines, research interests, and stages of career.
Our time frame spans the 1790s to World War I. Through the LNCC speaker series, we invite scholars from diverse academic specialties into our ongoing consideration of interdisciplinary approaches to this exciting expanse of British culture and history. Our quarterly reading group, sponsored by the British Studies Cluster, is also dedicated to examining interdisciplinary methodologies in recent scholarship on modern Britain.
As a graduate student colloquium, we pride ourselves in serving the network of graduate scholarship on modern British studies at Northwestern. The LNCC fosters the research of graduate students through hosting professionalization workshops, connecting students to university resources, and helping them access opportunities available in the greater Chicago area.
