Gladstone's Library

Gladstone's Library


Teaching and the Victorians is a collaborative conference between Gladstone’s Library and the University of Liverpool. Its aim is to consider contemporary pedagogy in Victorian studies in the current HE context – above all, we want to foster wide-ranging and intellectually honest thinking about what teaching Victorian studies means today. How do we best teach the Victorians? Does the discourse of ‘relevance’ help or hinder us? How is what we are teaching under the banner of Victorian studies changing, and what are the implications of these changes? How far do institutional contexts and ideologies affect our teaching of the nineteenth century? Are there clashes between the ‘values’ of the contemporary HE sector and Victorian values? What are the professional and personal ‘brands’ of Victorian studies today, and do they matter?
