On Friday 11 March a group on CNCS and CVAC members had a hands on experience at Burt Hall Northumbria with exquisite artefacts from the De Morgan collection. Led by curator Sarah Hardy the group learned conservation techniques and handled pieces from the De Morgan Foundation.
As Halloween approaches, we talk to Dr Efram Sera-Shriar, Associate Director of Research for the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies, International, at Durham. His research explores the study of the occult and its intersection with the sciences. He is the lead organiser for Beyond the Veil: Cross-Cultural & Interdisciplinary Studies of Horror, Gothic, and the Occult in the Nineteenth Century, taking place on Halloween, 31 October.
Durham University and over 30 partner organisations have created an international network that will open new research and collaboration opportunities for Nineteenth-Century Studies.
