About CNCS

The Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies is a locus for research in all aspects of the long nineteenth century (from 1760s to present-day neo-Victorianism), drawing from the widest possible range of disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches. We aim to generate new research and collaborative opportunities across the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences and Sciences, bridging Durham University and regional, national and international research networks and organisations.
