Michaelmas 2013 Programme

Fridays, 2pm, weeks 3 and 5, Seminar Room A
English Faculty, St Cross Building, Manor Road, Oxford 

Week 3, 2pm (Friday 1 November) Dr Andrew Mangham (Reading), '"The Bar of Science": Charles Dickens, G. H. Lewes and the Spontaneous Combustion of Mr Krook.'

Week 5, 2pm (Friday 15 November) Dr Cathryn Setz (St Anne's College), 'Stone Age Science: Contra-Darwinian Discourse in Modernist Magazines.'

Week 7, 2pm (Friday 29 November) (No speaker confirmed at present, but we're still hoping to book one.)

In Hilary Term 2014 we plan to have sessions on 7 February and 7 March 2014, with papers by Will Abberley and Daniel McCann; the usual slot in 5th week (21 February) clashes with a proposed workshop on the ether organised by Jaume Navarro, so there won't be a session on that day. In Trinity Term 2014 we hope to have a paper by Kirsten Shepherd-Barr, and others as yet to be invited. If you are interested in giving a paper, please contact Michael Whitworth.

Convenors: Dr Michael Whitworth (Merton) Dr Kirsten Shepherd-Barr (St Catz)
