Global Nineteenth Century

This working group is an interdisciplinary forum dedicated to the illumination and interrogation of the cultural production, political formations, and historical processes that characterize the long nineteenth century (1789–1914) and exert significant influence into the twenty-first century. The group examines recent scholarship related to the nineteenth century, presenting speaker workshops (presentations of works in progress by Yale faculty, graduate students, and visiting scholars) and collaborative discussions of recently published scholarship. The working group will be of interest to students and faculty in a number of departments, especially in the humanities and social sciences.
