The UNCommon is an interdisciplinary conference that aims to bring UNC’s 19th-century Americanists together to share research and avenues to professionalization. Faculty, graduate students, and alumni from the fields of English and Comparative Literature, Religious Studies, History, and Art History will forge connections, collaborate, and celebrate UNC’s work in the study of the nineteenth-century U.S. during this one-day conference on Wednesday, March 12, 2014.
An important part of the day’s events will be several panels on professionalization, during which UNC alumni from each of the participating departments will share their experience in making the transition from graduate school to a career. We also welcome representatives from King’s College London’s Nineteenth-Century Studies to provide a crucial transatlantic perspective to the “UNCommon” discussion. Students, graduate students, and faculty from several UNC departments and from King’s College London will also have the opportunity to present and discuss their current research throughout the day. To this end, we aim to incorporate a variety of perspectives on the study of nineteenth-century American culture and society.
