The Edwardian Culture Network is a new project 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; and specialist bibliographies and timelines.
- Running a series of one-day 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: firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
Update: We can now confirm that the inaugural conference of the Edwardian Culture Network will be held at the University of York in April 2013. Further details to follow.
