Nineteenth Century Studies
The University is literally grounded in the 19th century, being set in the grounds of Booloominbah with its Gordon Window, designed to commemorate 19th-century British empire and heritage.
Given this context – and the existence of well-established teaching and research cultures associated with that context since the university's formal independence in 1954 – it seems appropriate that the diversity should be brought together in a meaningful fashion.
The community network aims to consolidate and enhance the existing expertise of UNE scholars in this field, with a view to establishing and strengthening cross-disciplinary connections, and raising awareness of the university's particular talents in nineteenth-century studies. The network's members are enthusiastic and interested in supervising students in various fields of nineteenth-century studies, including: music, visual culture, literature, history, philosophy, art, sport, and leisure.
