Transgression, Trespassing and Taboos in the Long-Nineteenth Century

Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference

Cardiff University, 10 April 2013

 The long-nineteenth century (1789-1914) is a unique period for the study of transgression ,  and the multiplicity of genres and media in the long-nineteenth century emphasises the need to approach this period from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Capitalising upon current trends in historiography and literary studies, this one-day interdisciplinary postgraduate conference is organised by the School of English, Communication and Philosophy (ENCAP), and the School of History, Archaeology and Religion (SHARE). The conference will feature papers by postgraduate research students from multiple academic disciplines, reflecting current research trends and demonstrating the value of sharing expertise from different disciplines to further understanding in this area.

The confirmed keynote addresses will be given by Dr Harry Cocks (Nottingham) and Dr Heather Worthington (Cardiff).

We welcome papers from Postgraduate Researchers in English Literature, History, and other related fields. Abstracts of up to 300 words for 20 minute papers and a one-page CV should be sent to transgression2013@cardiff.ac.uk no later than Friday 21 December 2012.
