It’s an exciting time to be a nineteenth-century researcher at Edge Hill! The university is home to EHU Nineteen: an interdisciplinary research group fostering outstanding research and teaching in nineteenth century topics; collaborative opportunities with museums, galleries and heritage partners in the North West and UK; a visiting speaker series and conference programme including hosting BARS/NASSR 2021.

We welcome proposals on any aspect of nineteenth-century history, literature and culture, and we would be particularly pleased to supervise projects in the following fields:

  • Nineteenth-century print culture
  • Romantic, Victorian and Fin de Siècle literature
  • Children’s literature
  • Gothic and sensation fiction
  • Gender and sexuality

We would be delighted to discuss potential projects in advance. Please contact us via the ‘People’ page of EHU Nineteen website.
