Bringing together scholars at various stages of their careers who have shed new light on Victorian art, design, and society, this conference explores the cultural politics of the Victorian era under three main themes: the culture of exhibitions, Victorian media, and aesthetic theory and practice. The program features four keynote lectures from professors Lucy Hartley, Morna O’Neill, Elizabeth Prettejohn, and Mary Roberts; a group of new research papers; and presentations by current graduate students.
Breakout sessions present an opportunity to discuss objects in the Center’s collection, especially those on display in the coinciding exhibition, Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts and Crafts Movement.
This program is free and open to the public and will take place at the Center and at the Loria Center. Online registration will be available in February. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
