The Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century graduate research cluster brings together graduate students from English, Art History, Comparative Literature, French & Italian, Germanics, and other departments who research aspects of global middle modernity. The group has met on campus for more than ten years and currently hosts a variety of events to foster collaboration and camaraderie between departments and between students and faculty. As a Simpson Center-funded research cluster, we have collaborated with other academic units, including the Textual Studies Program and the Anthroposcene research cluster, to host international scholars and public-facing events including JaneFest and Frankenreads. We seek to expand and increase our presence as a cross-disciplinary research cluster, encouraging our members to share resources and support so as to broaden our knowledge base and offer opportunities for collaboration.
