Bric-à-Brackery 2008:
Victorian Culture, Commodities and Curios
University of Aberystwyth
28th â€" 29th July

bric-à-brac, (n): Old curiosities of artistic character, knick-knacks,
antiquarian odds-and-ends, such as old furniture, plate, china, fans,
statuettes, and the like (OED)

Derived from the French for ‘at random’, the phrase 'bric-à-brac' was
first introduced to the English language in 1840 by Thackeray who
used it to describe a visit to the Palace of Versailles. The purpose of
this conference is to use Thackeray’s expression to debate the nature
of the impact of the curious, exotic and downright odd on Victorian
literature and culture.
