Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies - MA Victorian Studies

Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies

Welcome to the Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies (LCVS).
Established in 1994, the LCVS offers full-time and part-time funded PhD Studentships in a supportive environment. We have a reputation for securing conference funding too, which Postgraduate Research students and early career academics can use as a bursary.
The Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies is also the base for one of the leading UK courses around this subject, MA Victorian Studies. The course offers modules on literary, cultural and social history and art historical topics, and has a growing M.Phil/PhD programme.
News: Dr Di Drummond is Reader in Modern History at Leeds Trinity University and a leading expert on Britain's railway history. In this interview she discusses her most recent book, Tracing your Railway Ancestors: A Guide for Family Historians.
The centre runs the following public activities:
It is also the home of the Journal of Victorian Culture, now being published three times a year by the centre in association with our new publisher, Taylor & Francis. We are developing links with other Victorian Studies Centres across the country, and hold an annual colloquium with colleagues studying British Culture at Cergy-Pontoise University in Paris.
In 2013, we hosted Towards the Metropolis, a two-day conference on the interaction between metropolis and colony, town and country, city and province. The proceedings of this conference will be published in early 2015. We are also continuing to work on collaborations with local museums and art galleries.
