Applications are now invited for two part-time (5 hours per week), 1 year internships with the Birkbeck Forum for Nineteenth-Century Studies: an events officer intern and an editorial intern.
The Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies
The Centre was first established in 1997 under the directorship of Professor Isobel Armstrong to bring together researchers in English, History of Art and History. It has since developed a reputation for its diverse events, including co-ordinating the innovative, intellectually imaginative London Seminar for Nineteenth-Century Studies, which has led the way in defining this important interdisciplinary field. In collaboration with the Institute of English Studies, it convenes a busy schedule of conferences and symposia on a diverse range of themes. It runs the successful annual Dickens Day and has provided opportunities for Postgraduate students to organise and run conferences and symposia. It also hosts the Birkbeck Forum for Nineteenth-Century Studies, which sees national and international speakers coming to Birkbeck throughout the year. The Forum was launched in January 2012 by Professor Andrew H. Miller, and has established a reputation for showcasing exciting and innovative nineteenth-century scholarship.
