Register now for Romance, Revolution & Reform Conference, ‘Reform in the Long Nineteenth Century’

We are delighted to announce that registration for the Romance, Revolution & Reform Conference, ‘Reform in the Long Nineteenth Century’, is now open. This one-day, multidisciplinary conference will bring together nineteenth-century scholars from across the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to share their research in a vibrant and friendly environment. With a dynamic selection of papers relating to the theme of ‘Reform’ in the Long Nineteenth Century, the conference will run three parallel sessions, with panels on Slavery and Abolition; Politics and Society; Crime, Punishment and Reformation; Literature; Charity and Campaigning; and Landscape and the Visual Arts.

We will also be holding a keynote lecture, given by Professor Christer Petley (University of Southampton), entitled The Slaveholder’s Tale: British Jamaica in an Age of Revolution, which promises to be a highlight.

At the end of the day, we will be sending Issue 2 of our award winning, open access journal, Romance, Revolution & Reform live on our website.

The conference will take place on 15th January 2020 from 9:00-17:00, in the Nuffield Theatre Building on Highfield Campus.

We have done our best to make tickets affordable for as many scholars who would like to attend as possible, and we can now confirm the delegate price will be just £20.00. You can book tickets for the event here:
