Led by Dr Rachel Bryant Davies (Comparative Literature) and Dr Amanda Sciampacone (History) this seminar series will be dedicated to addressing the legacies of the nineteenth century and what studying the period involves across disciplines. How does the nineteenth century still shape today’s world? What is the value of interdisciplinary nineteenth-century research? How do different disciplines address the same questions, or ask questions of similar or the same source materials?

Led by Dr Ana Laura Zavala Guillen (Geography) and Dr Micaela Signorelli (English and Drama) this project will develop a series of online and in-person workshops that delve into the connections between bodies and research to explore how female-presenting researchers navigate the ubiquitous risk of gender-based violence in the field.
This interactive workshop will bring together researchers working on early modern food in different fields to discuss two related questions: how can cooking and otherwise attempting to follow or adapt early modern recipes function as a form of research? And how to use digital media to teach a public audience about the history of food and cooking and the ways it intersects with histories of gender, race, class, and colonialism? It will be led by Dr Clio Doyle (History).
