Registration Open – New Directions in Nineteenth-Century Periodical Studies Conference

Registration is now open for the New Directions in Nineteenth-Century Periodical Studies Conference, taking place at the University of Leeds on 20th September 2019, 09:00-19:00.

New Directions is a conference to promote discussion of innovative research amongst those working in the field, at all levels. The recent passing of one of the founders of periodical studies, Michael Wolff, makes this an opportune moment to take stock of the field, look forward to future changes, and foster developments in scholarship. Papers will be given on topics broadly related to periodical studies in the nineteenth century, with a focus on original and interesting directions in research. Alongside promising research from new scholars and more senior academics, we have a brilliant keynote speaker to close proceedings; Professor Alexis Easley.
