NENC - Announcements for Autumn Programme 2013

The North East Postgraduate Research Group for the Long Nineteenth Century (NENC) is hosting an introductory session for new members on Monday 14 October at 6pm at Newcastle University (Room 2.24, Percy Building, School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics).

NENC warmly encourages new postgraduates from the North East universities (and further afield) at MA, MLitt, MPhil and PhD level to attend.  Current co-organisers will be introducing the research group and its aims, before inviting others to discuss their research interests.  We welcome all postgraduates working on any aspect of the literature and culture of the long nineteenth century (c. 1750-1914) to attend, and there will be opportunities to contribute to the organisation of the research group, as well as to lead reading group sessions and give papers. 

At present, we are seeking new organisers for NENC.  If you are interested in this role, please do get in touch at

A prospective plan for the Autumn currently runs as follows:

14 October 6pm - Introductory session (meet and greet with wine reception)

18 November 6pm - Beatrice Turner (Newcastle) will be leading a session at Northumbria University.

16 December 5pm - Sarah Lill (Northumbria) will be leading a Christmas session at DurhamUniversity.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
