Drawing on the rich heritage of 'Victorian Bloomsbury', the Institute of English Studies (IES) is excited to offer an annual study week dedicated to celebrating and understanding the great nineteenth-century writers. In 2019, we will focus on the BrontësParticipants will have the opportunity to hear leading UK scholars on the latest research on Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë through five morning lectures, followed by questions and discussion. These will be followed by afternoon seminars on Brontë critics of the nineteenth century. The seminars, in a group of about 15 students, will be text-based, with novels and other works for preparatory reading notified well in advance. They will be led by a discussion leader with specialist expertise on the Brontës work. The schedule also provides for a series of student-led informal seminars convened by a staff member and the opportunity for guided library time.
