Projects per year
Our Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Research Group encompasses a wide range of different research specialisms and research methodologies.
In addition to our renowned work on Romanticism and post-Romanticism, gothic literature, Victorian fiction, nineteenth-century poetry and nineteenth-century life writing, we have also produced innovative and compelling research on nineteenth-century writing and science; Romanticism and colonialism; Romantic Orientalism, especially China; poetics and translation; and the role of the anecdote in eighteenth-century and Romantic period writing.
Major research projects have also focused on specific individual authors and artists from this period, including Amelie Opie, Samuel Richardson, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Charles Darwin, William Hazlitt, George Eliot, Richard Wagner, and Henry James.
