‘Making a Darkness Visible: The Literary Moment 1820-1840’ is a British Academy-funded seminar series which investigates the literature and culture of a period that has traditionally fallen between the ‘Romanticism’ and ‘Victorianism’. The second event, on the 22nd of February, is a seminar with Professor Angela Esterhammer (Toronto) titled ‘The 1820s: An Improvisational and Speculative Moment’. Professor Esterhammer will lead the discussion, with responses from Dr Michael Rossington (Newcastle) and Dr Pete Newbon (Northumbria).
The seminar will begin at 5pm, in the Birley Room, Hatfield College, Durham. The event is free to attend and all are welcome. Queries to either Dr Peter Garratt (Durham) or Dr David Stewart (Northumbria).
Please note that the NENC reading group session for February will also take place in Durham on the same afternoon, and has been timed to allow members to attend both events.
