The Centre for Nineteenth Century International

4th Virtual Lab
Scans, Databases, and Apps: Teaching the Nineteenth Century in the Digital Era.

The Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies International (CNCSI), (which developed from the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies founded in 2013 by Professor Bennett Zon at the University of Durham), gathers a consortium of universities, independent research organisations, and professional societies from around the world interested in long-nineteenth-century studies. This innovative network aims to promote international collaboration, advance interdisciplinary studies involving the widest possible geographical and thematic reach, and host conversations on long nineteenth-century studies. As CNCSI keeps expanding its activities and outreach, we now plan on creating a virtual laboratory to start such informal conversations. Each session of our lab will therefore foreground the work of a high-profile guest scholar, who will be invited to present his/ her research interests, and teaching methods.

The main aim of this Virtual Lab is to create a space where invited academics may share theoretical and practical information, confront methodologies, as well as teaching and research practices. This dynamic conversation may also provide fellow colleagues and researchers with a more comprehensive overview of existing approaches to our teaching methods and research interests, and, possibly, further innovative projects and exchanges across disciplines.
