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.

George Eliot and Her Circle, Anglia Ruskin University, 26 May 2017

While I would not claim to be an Eliot specialist, I’ve always been deeply interested in her life and writing. My lecture will build on the work I present in Leicester, focusing, probably, on Daniel Deronda. Details about the conference, including the call for papers, are here.

SHARP Annual Conference, University of Victoria, BC, 9-12 June 2017

I’m giving a talk based on my work in Chicago called ‘”The indexes of some periodicals are good, but those of the many are bad”: periodicals, bad indexes and the technology of the book in the nineteenth century’. Details of the conference are here.

The Book Index, Oxford University, 22-23 June 2017

The title of this presentation is deceptively similar to the work I’m presenting at SHARP, but the paper is actually drawn from the other half of the Chicago work. It’s called ‘”The indexes of some periodicals are good, but those of the many are bad”: Indexing Periodicals in the Nineteenth Century’. Details of the conference are here.

RSVP Annual Conference, University of Freiburg, 27-29 July 2017

I’m really excited to be speaking on a panel with colleagues from Cologne, where I’m spending a few weeks in July. Our panel is ‘Periodicals, Classification, Codex’ and my paper ‘Night Work or Night Play? Periodicals, Archives, and Poole’s Index‘. Details here.
