In Reading Victorian Illustration, 1855-1875 (Ashgate 2012), Paul Goldman calls for an "enlargement" of illustration studies; "[t]he breadth and depth of what exists and remains relatively unexplored is staggering" (15). In response to Goldman's call and the increasing critical interest in nineteenth-century illustration, brought about by better digital access and the digitization of obscure materials, we are devoting the summer 2015 special issue of Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies to the topic "Illustration and Gender."

Words and images have always been used to fashion, refashion and challenge identities. In the age of discovery, written and visual texts combined to negotiate identities of self and other; the nineteenth and twentieth centuries saw an explosion of visual technologies. In the early twenty-first century, our lives have become more permeated by multimedial texts and images than ever before.

"Embodied Pain: Andrew Miller on Sense and Suffering"
Forthcoming: Volume 2, Issue 3 (December 2015)
Papers are invited for a national conference on film and film studies, focusing on the cinemas of the world, and the manifest and not-so-manifest mythos that go into their making. The conference intends to address areas ranging from film theory and the nature of the cinematic experience to the practices of viewing films on a day to day basis. However, papers which rely merely on thematic analyses of films and ignore the potential of film form are not encouraged.
In the epilogue to the second edition of The Politics of Postmodernism, Linda Hutcheon heralds the closure of the very period she helped to define: "Let's just say it," she admits, "it's over" (2002: 165-166). This view has in recent years been echoed by an increasing number of cultural critics, who cite the failure of the postmodern aesthetic—developed in the 1970s and characterized by fragmentation, self-reflexivity, and irony—to embody the very real ethical and political concerns of twenty-first century citizens (cf. Eshelman, 2008; Kirby, 2009; Toth, 2010; Vermeulen and van den Akker, 2010; Abrahamson, 2013).
