Nineteenth-Century Graduate Forum
The objective of this forum is to create a collaborative and supportive space for graduate students working on projects related to the period. The goal is to foster intellectual exchange and feedback and to encourage a sense of community and camaraderie among graduates working in the Nineteenth Century strand.

Each session will feature two to three presentations, allowing speakers to showcase their work-in-progress.
To ensure fruitful discussions, speakers are required to submit a brief abstract of their presentation a week in advance. This abstract will be circulated among participants.
Presentations should last approximately 15 minutes, followed by a 25-minute period dedicated to discussion and feedback.

The Independent Theatre Society: rethinking the roots of modern British theatre (Rachel O’Nunain).
The Haunted Closet: Closet(ed) Plays and the Drama of the Body’s Absence (Helen Dallas ).
Victorian Printing and Its Medievalist Paratexts: The Uses and Abuses of the Medieval Book by The Chiswick, Kelmscott, and Dent Presses (Evan Leonhard).

We want to emphasise that the Nineteenth-Century Graduate Forum is open to all who wish to participate.
