The Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies was established in 1994. The LCVS partly funds a University full-time PhD studentship, offers a particularly supportive environment for part-time Phd students, and has a proven track record for securing conference funding for the provision of bursaries for delegates who are PGR students and early career academics.
The Centre runs the following public activities:
In early 2012 we hosted a post-graduate conference (on Victorian Memory) and a colloquium (on Victorian Spiritualities). In November 2012 we hosted a colloquium, Muck and Brass, an exciting collaborative event which explored interdisciplinary research on Victorian economic and financial cultures.
The Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies is also the base of a very successful M.A. in Victorian Studies - which offers modules on literary, cultural and social history and art historical topics - and has a growing M.Phil/PhD programme.
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 early 2013, we hosted Towards the Metropolis, a two-day conference on the interaction between metropolis and colony, town and country, city and province. We are also continuing to work on collaborations with local museums and art galleries.
