Late Victorianism and Modernism: the Making of Modernity - Second symposium

  • Wednesday 27 October 2010, 4-6pm
  • Constance Naden Room (Arts Building 103)

We start from opposite statements of a chosen world. Set up violent structure of adolescent clearness between two extremes" [Blast, 1914]


Scholars within Victorian Studies and Modernist Studies are often approaching the same issues, and sometimes even the same authors or texts, but are persistently institutionally separated around the 'boundary' of 1900. This series of symposia is dedicated to undoing that separation.

At this second event, our speakers are:

  • Carolyn Burdett: 'Coining Empathy: Vernon Lee and Psychology as Aesthetics
  • 'Laura Marcus: 'Conrad and the "Cinema Mind"'

This event is open to all staff and postgraduate students, and these papers will be followed by a collective discussion.
