The Edwardian Culture Network has been designed to bring together scholars working on various aspects of culture in Britain between the years 1895-1914. Often perceived, and frequently dismissed, as a period of ‘transition’ between the Victorian and the Modern, the Edwardian period is rarely considered seriously in its own right, and lacks the focussed critical attention that it deserves. The Edwardian Culture Network aims to address this omission in the following ways:

    • Establishing  a website which will provide a variety of up-to-date resources for all researchers working in this field (from post-graduate to professor), including: a list of participating scholars with descriptions of their research interests; frequently updated news on exhibitions, conferences and publications; links to various web resources, specialist bibliographies and timelines.
    • Running a series of conferences, bringing together all branches of the humanities, to explore the notion of Edwardian culture from a variety of angles.
    • Working towards creating an online journal.

If you work in the humanities and your research interests fall between the years 1895-1914, we would be delighted to hear from you. E-mail us at: edwardianculture@hotmail.co.uk, leave a comment below, or follow us on facebook. E-mail us if you are interested in having a book reviewed.

The Edwardian Culture Network was founded in 2011 by Dr. Samuel Shaw (Center for British Art, Yale University), Dr. Sarah Shaw (Center for Modern Studies, University of York) and Dr. Naomi Carle (English, University of Durham).

    We are interested in the Keele event, but my partner has limited mobility. I assume we will be able to park in the courtyard at Keele Hall (he has a blue badge). However, I don’t know which floor the Old Library is on, whether there is a lift, and how far he would have to walk. Please can you help?

    Another question I’m afraid, the description of the Keele event does not give any times!

  3. I am getting in touch with Keele about the question of room access. Meanwhile, a draft schedule, with timings, is available if you e-mail the conference organisers at edwardianculture@hotmail.co.uk

  4. I can confirm that the Old Library has access for those of limited mobility.
