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. The INCS Constitution may be found here.
Each spring since 1986 INCS has hosted a conference on a theme of broad interest in nineteenth-century studies. We have also sponsored or co-sponsored international conferences in London, Paris, and (in 2018) 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. Our Archives section includes most of our annual conference programs, including the most recent ones listed below.
