Interdisciplinary Nineteenth Century Studies (INCS)

INCS is an international group of scholars dedicated to interdisciplinary discussion and research. The organization sponsors annual meetings and enjoys a collaborative relationship with Nineteenth-Century Contexts: An Interdisciplinary Journal. INCS encourages scholarly work that transcends disciplinary boundaries in its approach to cultural studies.

Each spring since 1986, INCS has hosted a conference on a theme of broad interest in nineteenth-century studies (with the notable exception of 2021 when the conference was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic). We have also sponsored or co-sponsored international conferences in London, Paris, and Rome. Dialogue is the featured mode of exchange at INCS meetings. Papers are distributed in advance, while session presenters summarize their papers at the conference to stimulate discussion among all those in attendance. Click here for more information on INCS.
