To celebrate the inaugural issue of Global Nineteenth-Century Studies (GNCS), the Society for Global Nineteenth-Century Studies will host a two-day symposium on oceanic approaches to nineteenth-century culture, ecology, economics, history, and politics in a range of global contexts.


Intentionally broad in scope, the symposium seeks to cross-map nineteenth-century studies with key currents of the blue humanities, the Black and circum-Atlantic, Indian Ocean studies, oceanic ecologies, post- and decolonialism, maritime globalization, and beyond.


We welcome participants from any discipline and at any stage of their scholarly career. Please see the full call for papers here.

Selected symposium participants will also be invited to a collaborative online writing workshop in 2023. Revised papers may be considered for publication in GNCS or in the Studies in the Global Nineteenth Century book series by Liverpool University Press.
