The Nineteenth Century Research Seminars (NCRS) will take place at the Institute for Advanced Studies of the Humanities (IASH) in the University of Edinburgh from January - May 2014. This monthly seminar series seeks to provide a cross- and inter-disciplinary space in which doctoral researchers and early career researchers (ECRs) working on the nineteenth century can meet, discuss their research, form connections, and, perhaps, sow the seeds for future collaborations. Each seminar will consist of two papers: one paper from a University of Edinburgh-based researcher and one paper from a researcher based in any other higher education institution. The NCRS is supported by the University of Edinburgh?s Researcher-Led Initiative Fun.
NCRS invites proposals for twenty-minute papers addressing any aspect of nineteenth century literature, history, and culture from doctoral researchers and ECRs only. Abstracts of no more than 250 words along with the name, brief biography (<100 words) and institutional affiliation of the speaker should be submitted in the body of an email email@example.com. The closing date for submissions is Thursday 31 October 2013.
The NCRS will reimburse the selected non-University of Edinburgh speakers? travel expenses up to £100.
