Royal Holloway 19thC Reading Group: Meeting Thursday 18th November


This is to announce the next (and first for this academic year!) meeting of the .

Thursday 18th November 2pm-3pm IN244

Text for discussion: ‘Introduction’ to Andrew Miller’s The Burdens of Perfection: On Ethics and Reading in Nineteenth-Century British Literature. Ithaca: Cornell UP, 2008. (I will post a .pdf of the reading to the Reading Group webpage.)

As always, all postgraduates (taught and research) and staff are welcome to attend.

For those of you who are new to the Department, the group meets twice a term to discuss nominated texts which contribute in interesting ways to current critical debates in the field of nineteenth-century studies. Postgraduates and staff who are not nineteenth-century specialists, but who have some interest in the broader themes/debates involved in the set text or in nineteenth-century topics generally, are very welcome to join us.

Best wishes,


Dr Vicky Greenaway
