Posted on 7 July 2012

Early career researchers Dr Samuel Shaw (History of Art, University of York), Sarah Shaw (English, University of York) and Naomi Carle (English, University of Durham)launch the Edwardian Culture Network

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Edwardian Culture Network, an interdisciplinary project designed to bring together scholars working on various aspects of culture in Britain between the years 1895-1914. The Network will provide an online database of researchers and resources, updates on current exhibitions and publications, and a platform for discussion and organising events. We are also working towards the creation of an online journal.

Our inaugural conference, ‘Beyond the Garden Party: Re-Thinking Edwardian Culture’, will held at the University of York in April 2013,for which further details will be circulated this Autumn. In the meantime, we are developing our website, which can be found at:http://www.edwardianculture.com.

Key to the success of this site is our directory of researchers in the field. If you would like to join this list, please e-mail us with a short ‘blurb’ consisting of 100 words about your research, your institutional affiliation, a list of keywords for your project, and a contact e-mail address (for examples please see http://www.edwardianculture.com/researchers). We will update the website regularly with news of events, exhibitions, publications, and interviews with researchers. If you comeacross anything that might be of interest to scholars of Edwardian culture, please send it our way! You can e-mail the project at edwardianculture@hotmail.co.uk
