Reminder: The MMU PGR ECR Long Nineteenth Century Seminar – Humour and Satire in the Long Nineteenth Century, 24 November

Our online seminar will feature cross disciplinary presentations, followed by a Q&A session.

The PGR/ECR Long Nineteenth Century Interdisciplinary Research Group is organised by volunteer PGRs and ECRs at Manchester Metropolitan University. It aims to foster interinstitutional and multi faculty networking and offers platforms for its community to share the latest research on topics that have a focus in the long nineteenth century.

Following the success of last year’s Seminar Series, the PGR/ECR Long Nineteenth Century organising committee are currently planning the 2022/23 annual programme. In order to foster collaboration across the post-graduate community within the field of the long nineteenth century, the seminar series seeks to explore some of the cross-thematic research priorities at the centre of doctoral studies.

Humour and satire played a significant role in nineteenth-century culture by influencing, supporting and challenging gender, political and societal expectations and identities.
