The Transformative Power of the Arts in Victorian and Edwardian Culture and Society

Victorian and Edwardian times were a period when the arts were thriving:  Victorians and Edwardians were avid readers of the novel; the short-lived but highly influential Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood inspired many painters, sculptors and poets; the nineteenth and the early twentieth century was also a period which saw the emergence of new art forms (photography, cinema) following the discovery of new techniques, such as the calotype.

This conference means to address the way in which these various arts impacted Victorian and Edwardian society, economy and technology as well as the other art forms within that society.
