We’re pleased to announced that the 19th Century Seminar has received funding for 2017-2018! Our topic this year is “Mobilities and Migrations: the Nineteenth Century and Beyond.” This theme stresses our collective interest, not just in the long 19th century, but also in how ideas, texts, and people circulated across borders (institutional and regional, perceived and real). This topic is intentionally broad, with an eye toward inclusiveness and flexibility to accommodate our very wide ranging interests.
This new website will be a place to share announcements for local events, circulate readings, and strengthen the intellectual community of 19th Century scholars in the DC and mid-Atlantic region. If you would like to get involved, please visit our Contact page and follow us on Twitter @19thCenturyGWU.
