We warmly invite you to join us on Friday, 22 January 2021 at 1 p.m. (EST) / 6 p.m. (GMT) for “A Discussion on Decolonizing Periodical Studies,” part of the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals’ Digital Salon Series 2021.
This event, like those taking place in cognate scholarly organizations and in
wider public arenas, will engage with biases that shape nineteenth-century
periodical studies. It will also provide the foundation for the development of a
nineteenth-century periodical studies reading group focused on race and
transimperialism. Our roundtable participants include:
- Caroline Bressey, Reader in Cultural and Historical Geography,
specialist in the Black Presence in Victorian Britain, University College
- Priti Joshi, Professor of 19th-century British literature and culture, with
an emphasis on colonialism and race relations, University of Puget
- Candace Ward, Professor of English, specializing in early Anglo-
Caribbean literature and culture, Florida State University
Register for this free online event here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Registrants will also receive optional readings authored by our roundtable participants to spur our discussion about a week prior to the event.
Participation does not require RSVP membership; all are welcome. You may also learn more about our work as an organization and how to join RSVP by exploring our website.
For any queries about this event, please send an email directed to our Vice President.
