Shows of London
19th Century Group
The Shows of London Group is a mixed group of academics and postgraduates at King’s College London and the Courtauld Institute who are interested in the entertainment and display cultures of 19th century London, urban cultures, and technologies of spectacle and consumption.
We meet three times each semester to discuss particular works on these topics and the broad methodological issues that they raise.
Details of primary and suggested readings are available at Shows of London.
For further information contact Josephine McDonagh or Kate Osborne.
