The North East Forum in Eighteenth-Century and Romantic Studies is a monthly forum open to the staff and postgraduate students of all universities in the North East who are interested in the literature, culture, art and history of the eighteenth century and Romantic period, and includes members from Newcastle, Northumbria, Durham and Sunderland universities.
The next forum meeting takes place this Friday 2 December, from 3-5 pm in Space 4, at Culture Lab, Newcastle University. The session is co-hosted with Newcastle’s Literature Speaker series. Culture Lab appears as no. 7 on the campus map here.
In the first hour, NENC member Helen Williams (Northumbria University) will give a paper entitled ‘“Pause on the Landing”: Digressive Experiments in Tristram Shandy and Journey around my Room’. After the break, Professor Richard Terry (Northumbria University) will talk about postscripts in eighteenth-century letters and literary works.
The forum concludes with a trip to the pub and is always a great way to meet people with similar research interests from other institutions; Friday's session in particular will be a good opportunity to hear in more detail about the research project of one of our members. We hope to see some of you there.
