Long Nineteenth-Century Colloquium

The Long Nineteenth Century Colloquium supports Northwestern scholars who study the 19th century, in Britain and beyond, by encouraging state-of-the-field discussions that bridge various disciplines, research interests, and stages of career. Our time frame stretches from roughly 1790 through the First World War.

The LNCC Speaker Series features scholars from diverse academic specialties who contribute to our ongoing engagement with the interdisciplinary study of this exciting historical period. Our quarterly reading group, sponsored by the British Studies Cluster, is also dedicated to examining interdisciplinary methodologies in recent scholarship.

As a graduate student colloquium, we pride ourselves on serving a network of scholars pursuing British and global 19th-century studies at Northwestern. The LNCC fosters graduate student research by hosting professionalization workshops, connecting students to university resources, and providing students with access to opportunities in the greater Chicago area.
