SCVS is delighted to be co-hosting the British Association of Victorian Studies 2019 conference at the University of Dundee, 28-30 August 2019,¬†on the theme ‘Victorian Renewals.’ Our plans are still developing, so please check back for further information: we expect a CFP to be released by December 2018. The main conference website will be hosted by the Centre for Scottish Culture, University of Dundee.

The conference will start on the morning of the 28th with a series of careers workshops for academics at all stages of their career. The conference proper will begin at lunchtime on the 28th and end c.2pm on the 30th. Sessions will take place on the university campus, which is approximately 10-15 mins walk from the railway station. Dundee is easily accessible by rail from Glasgow or Edinburgh. If travelling from a distance, either airport has easy public transport to the city centre stations.

The conference will introduce delegates to a number of exciting venues in Dundee, old and new, including Verdant Works (the Jute Museum) and the new V&A Museum.
