Although the study of periodical culture is the focus of increasing scholarly interest, the important literary and historical role played by periodicals before the Victorian period has so far been underexamined. This conference will bring together work in this area with the general aim of interrogating conventional periodizations of British cultural life from 1700 to 1840, and in particular of investigating whether the study of periodical culture lends support to the proposed alternative of a "Romantic Century".

'Medievalism Transformed' is an interdisciplinary postgraduate conference for researchers in a variety of disciplines.

It was the UK that gave the world 'le chav', first broadcast the social interaction of the inarticulate through reality television and were so busy testing our children in school that we forgot to teach them how to communicate effectively.

Our conference will be opened by a distinguished panel of spoken word experts:
