Nestled between the Lake District and Manchester, the Lancaster hub will be held 19th–21st September at the Victorian Storey Institute, next to the city’s medieval castle. Lancaster seeks proposals for individual 20-minute papers or pre-formed panels (3 x 20-min or 5 x 10-min papers). The Lancaster hub is interested in work that relates to any of the conference ‘Event’ topics. We also encourage proposals that investigate the Victorian period in relation to: the working classes; religion; the environment; and adaptation. We look forward to welcoming Victorian scholars of all career levels and to hearing from our two keynote speakers, Professor Ruth Livesey (Royal Holloway) and Professor John Bowen (York). Alongside the programme of talks there will be spaces and events to enable connection and collaboration among attendees. Visit the Event website ( for our CFP and to submit a proposal.
