Teaching 19th-Century Literature: Imaginative Approaches to Texts and Context
This conference for English teachers is designed to support and invigorate teaching at both GCSE and A Level and revitalise approaches to 19th-century texts. The day includes a range of inspiring talks, with an opening keynote from Professor John Bowen, University of York on the spell of 19th-century literature, and a closing session from acclaimed writer Tracy Chevalier reflecting on the enduring influence of Jane Eyre. As well as an engaging introduction to the Library’s in-depth online resources to support teaching and learning, delegates will have a choice of practical workshop sessions exploring a range of texts, themes and ideas of the period. Lunch is included, as are opportunities for networking.

More about Discovering Literature: Romantics and Victorians
From Romantic poetry to Gothic horror, from depictions of poverty and industrialisation to portrayals of the middle classes, and from crime fiction to fin de siècle decadence: the literary works of the Romantic and Victorian periods, and the contexts in which they were written, offer a wealth of topics to explore. The site uses manuscript and printed sources to shed light on the historical, political and cultural contexts in which key literary works were written. Go to the site to find out more.
