Victorian Impacts

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


A two-day event at the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde. Organised under the aegis of the Scottish Centre for Victorian and Neo Victorian Studies.

How does knowledge move between universities and the communities in which they are geographically located?
How is knowledge transformed as it moves through institutional and civic contexts?
What are the Victorian roots of these patterns of knowledge mobility?
This event brings together Victorianists interested in the relationships between universities and civic, regional or professional communities in the nineteenth century and the present day.

The first day will focus on investigating how knowledge moved between these groups in Victorian Britain. The second day will be an opportunity to think about the ways in which current Victorianist research projects are dealing with impact and knowledge mobility.
