2019 marks the bicentenary of Queen Victoria’s birth, as well as those of her many notable contemporaries. Emerging from the ‘Born in 1819’ research project led by Helen Kingstone and Trev Broughton, this workshop collaborates with Glasgow Museums Resource Centre to investigate how generational identities – particularly that of the 1819 cohort – might look different when we view them through the lens of the material culture they generated and left behind.
Keynote speakers: Dr Trev Broughton (University of York) on contemporaneity among Victoria’s Victorians, and Dr Gregory Tate (St Andrews) on Arthur Hugh Clough.
The event will also include snapshot presentations from other contributors, a tour of the Resource Centre’s wealth of collections, and an object-handling session.
