Professor Angela Esterhammer (University of Toronto) will be lecturing on Friday 22nd February as part of a British Academy series on the nineteenth century.
This is the second of a series of seminars sponsored by the British Academy that will run more or less monthly during 2013, under the title “Making A Darkness Visible: The Literary Moment 1820-40.” The events will feature invited speakers of international distinction to address the two decades habitually regarded as an interval or fringe dividing Romanticism and Victorianism.
Following this talk, there will be two responses from two specialists on the period, Dr Michael Rossington (Newcastle University) and Dr Pete Newbon (Northumbria University). There will also be a wine reception. Staff, postgraduates and members of the public are warmly invited to attend.
The lecture takes place on Friday 22nd February, at 5.00pm, in the Birley Room at Hatfield College.
