Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies
Founded in 1996, the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies at Birkbeck focuses both on the work of academic staff and the research of graduate students, bringing together a range of interests that form a context for graduate teaching. We see the era from 1790 to 1914, from the Revolutionary period to WWI, as a time when important cultural formations and literary and historical relationships emerge over a number of decades.
