Poetry, Politics, and Pictures in the Nineteenth Century

updated: 
Tuesday, September 8, 2009 - 7:24am
University of Sheffield

From 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' to 'The White Man's Burden', from Honoré Daumier's lithographs to the Chartist poetry of the Northern Star, the politics of the nineteenth century both shaped and were shaped by poetry and images.

This interdisciplinary conference at the University of Sheffield will address such questions as: how do the images and poetry of the nineteenth century reflect or challenge British and European politics of their day? How do nineteenth-century politics intersect with aesthetics to create new theories and practices of art? What kind of correlation might there be between political representation and the representation of politics in word and image?
