"Before and After Toynbee: conceiving the Industrial Revolution during the long nineteenth century".
A one-day symposium hosted by the Cambridge Victorian Studies Group, comprising a keynote talk by Professor Donald Winch (Sussex) and three panels of short papers.
To be held in the Lucia Windsor Room, Newnham College, Cambridge on September 23 2010,
This symposium aims to ask questions of the way industrialization was conceived both before and after Toynbee's "Lectures" in 1884, and to address the evolving idea of industrialism in the course of the long nineteenth century.
The symposium may be of interest to scholars working in a range of different fields, and will be held over the course of a single day in Cambridge. Lunch and refreshments will be provided for all participants.
