Victorians and the Democratic Imagination
Deadline Extended to 1 March 2016

Many Victorians worried that democratizing reforms would upset social stability by empowering a growing middle- and working class, and critics have long argued that these concerns are also manifest in the form and content of the Victorian novel. For many, the Victorian novel has become synonymous with middle-class ideology. D. A. Miller and Mary Poovey have argued that the Victorian novel promulgated a politics of confinement that defined the limits of the individual subject; more recently, Fredric Jameson has highlighted democratic impulses within the form of the novel itself, such as a de-emphasizing of protagonists to also give minor characters interiority.
