Education & Self-Improvement in the Long Nineteenth Century

23rd November 17:30 to 19:00
Since their first symposium in June 2021, this online Seminar Series has offered a fabulous platform for PGRs/ECRs to share their research and for students from all disciplines to learn more about the long nineteenth century.

The MMU PGR/ECR Long Nineteenth Century Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series is organised by Postgraduate students at Manchester Met and are aimed at fostering inter-institutional and multi-faculty networking.

Seminars are held on the third/last Thursday of every month, with two or three speakers presenting their research around a similar theme or topic related to the long nineteenth century.

This seminar will focus on education and self-improvement in the Long Nineteenth Century and will feature:

Catherine Freeman

Guildford High School. Girls’ deployment of middle-class education at the end of the long nineteenth century.

Michelle D. Ravenscroft

The Portico Library, Manchester: A Place for Self-Enlightenment and Cultural Exploration
