The ‘Institutions of Literature, 1700-1900’ network’s final event, ‘Institutions as Actors’, took place last Friday and Saturday in York.  We’d like to express our gratitude to our speakers, who gave uniformly excellent papers, and to all those who attended, who facilitated genuinely productive discussions in a friendly environment.  Over the next few weeks, we’ll be publishing some posts on the final workshop as this phase of the network wraps up, but we’ll also be looking forward to our next steps.  We’ll be announcing one follow-up project that will begin relatively quickly, but have further plans to take forward the network’s discussions, in both the short and longer terms.
