Are We Victorian?

In 1875, Anthony Trollope published The Way We Live Now, a novel about financial crises, political corruption, debt, and xenophobia. These topics are familiar to us as well: The Way We Live Now is, in many ways, still the way we live now.

Much recent debate in Victorian studies has concerned “presentism”—the idea that we still live with in a Victorian world. Presentism says that there is not much new about “neoliberalism:” as the manifesto of the V21 collective puts it, “In finance, resource mining, globalization, imperialism, liberalism, and many other vectors, we are Victorian, inhabiting, advancing, and resisting the world they made."

In Conflict is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair, Sarah Schulman develops a critique of “safe spaces” as a projection of past traumas that become proscriptive in the present, a reading she illustrates with examples from her experiences as a professor at the College of Staten Island, CUNY. Despite the rapidity with which commentators such as Columbia history professor Mark Lilla associate student interest in safe spaces with “special interest groups” and identity politics, Schulman opens her book by situating her perspective in her experiences as a lesbian and ACT UP activist.
