Forthcoming Talks

Below is a list of all my forthcoming talks. A list of talks I’ve given, with links to papers where available, is available on the Talks page.

Science Medicine and Culture in the Nineteenth Century Seminar Series at the University of Oxford on 14 May 2019

My paper is entitled ‘Binding and Embodiment: Oliver Lodge, Physics, and the Book’ and is an adapted version of my chapter in the forthcoming collection, Oliver Lodge: Continuity and Communication (University of Pittsburg Press, 2020). The abstract is on my blog here.

Science and Spiritualism, Leeds Trinity University, 30-31 May 2019

At this conference I’m giving a revised and condensed version of the Oxford paper also called ‘Binding and Embodiment: Oliver Lodge, Physics, and the Book’

Dregs, Dross, and Debris: The Art of Transient Print, Liverpool John Moores University, 9-10 July 2019

This is the first paper I’m giving based on work for the sixth chapter of my monograph. It’s entitled ‘Ephemera belongs to the dead: affect, print, and memory’. The conference website is here and my abstract is on my blog here.

Society for the History of Authorship, Readers, and Publishing (SHARP), 15-19 July 2019

At SHARP I’m drawing on chapter four of my book. My paper is ‘A Valley of Dry Bones Covered in Flesh: Print and the Formation of the Public Record Office and British Museum in Nineteenth-Century Britain.’

Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP), University of Brighton, 25-27 July 2019

This is the first of a number of papers I’m giving about miscellaneity in the nineteenth-century press. It’s called ‘”Confused and Ill-Arranged”: Reading Miscellaneity with Enquire Within‘.

Reading Miscellanies/Miscellaneous Reading: Interrelations between Medial Formats, Novel Structures, and Reading Practices in the Nineteenth century, University of Cologne: 29-31 August 2019

I’m still working out what to present at this conference. I want to speak on miscellaneity again, but want to do so with something other than Enquire Within. My provisional title, however, is ‘Confused and Ill-Arranged’: Reading Miscellaneity with Enquire Within‘.

North American Victorian Studies Association (NAVSA), 17-19 October 2019

I’m excited to be on a panel called ‘Victorian Archival Mediations’ organised by Matthew Poland and featuring Ann Garascia and Anna Wager. I’m returning to my ephemera work and my paper is ‘Ephemera belongs to the dead: affect, print, and the archive’.
