Blackwood’s Bicentenary Conference

Nick Mason and I organised a two-day conference to mark the bicentenary of the founding of Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine.  It was attended by around 40 scholars from the UK, North America, Europe and Asia.  There were great plenary lectures by Joanne Shattock and Mark Parker.  We hope that the conference will help to focus research around Romantic and nineteenth-century periodicals in the future.
