The inaugural meeting of the Midlands Interdisciplinary Victorian Studies Seminar (MIVSS) takes place this Thursday 20 January here at the University of Leicester. This free event is open to all scholars of the Victorian period from any and every discipline.

The keynote speaker will be Professor Gail Marshall, Director of our Victorian Studies Centre. Nick Freeman and Oliver Tearle, both from up the road at Loughborough, will speak on ‘“Tattered Ruins of that Map”: Literary Scholars and Microhistory’ and ‘The Psychical Case of Henry James’ respectively.

After lunch the assembled historians will discuss recently published articles by Margot Finn (Warwick) and Carol Christ (Smith College, Massachusetts).

MIVSS is based at the University of Lincoln and is supported by the British Association for Victorian Studies which has made five travel bursaries of 20 quid each available for postgraduate students. For more information on the event or the travel bursaries, please contact Kate Hill (
