Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Studies

Year of Funding:

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. We also host public-facing events, which have been very popular, including JaneFest in 2017, Frankenreads in 2018, and March Madness 2019. 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. We seek to expand and increase our presence with more interactive public-facing events and groups.
