‘Engineering Romanticism’ is a Leverhulme Trust Research project led by John Gardner. This research investigates intersections between engineering and literary cultures in the first half of the nineteenth century. The project analyses how engineers and writers engaged in revolutionary experimentation focussing on innovation and economy. It begins in 1798 with the arrival of the lead-screw lathe and ends in 1851 with the Great Exhibition. This event showcased the results of half a century of innovation and standardisation. The outputs for the project will include this website, articles, talks and a monograph. Here you can find links to John Gardner’s author biography, a research blog, talks, and links to other projects that engage with engineering and literary cultures.
