On Liberties: Victorian Liberals and their Legacies

July 3, 2013 - July 5, 2013
Flintshire CH5 3DF


Wednesday 3rd – Friday 5th July, 2013

This inter-disciplinary conference aims to explore the various implications of the idea of the ‘liberal’ in the Victorian period, but also its multifarious legacies: its legacies for modern politics, for the ways we conceptualize the Victorian period today, and most fundamentally for our notions of broader categories and concepts we still associate with ‘the liberal’ and with liberalism: knowledge, licence, education, and human freedom. Those interested should contact louisa.yates@gladlib.org
