The Victorian Fears Colloquium will draw on the developing field within Victorian Studies that focuses on the concept of fear; whether this is physical, political, religious, social, economic etc. This interdisciplinary event is designed primarily for postgraduate researchers at all levels and early career researchers.

The event will give researchers from all institutions an opportunity to present current or recent findings in a supportive environment, engage with one another’s work, and explore how the theme can relate to so much within Victorian Britain.

Confirmed Keynotes:

Professor Martin Hewitt, Pro Vice Chancellor and Dean in the Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences at Anglia Ruskin University

Dr Helen Davies, Head of English at Newman University.

The programme will include workshops during the day and a special evening event.

Information regarding accommodation and travel and fees will be available in due course. This event is being supported by CREST through the Researcher Mobility Scheme to enable researchers from institutions across the network to participate.
