Fashioning the Unconventional Victorian: Conduct, Costume, Coiffure

Despite a rich scholarship on Victorian dress culture, the idiosyncratic in Victorian costume often remains marginal in the criticism. This panel examines how fashion – original, unusual, peculiar, or even outlandish – preoccupied the Victorian cultural imagination. Papers might investigate eccentric fashion’s role in specific genres; its portrayal in the Victorian periodic press, advertising, or conduct manuals; the bachelor girl’s or the dandy’s nonconformity in attire; dress as gender or status markers; how costume determines, camouflages, or liberates; the fin-de-siècle aesthete’s couture; ways the outré became a normatively modish for the middle-class Victorian consumer.

Acting Age in the Long Eighteenth Century

Recent work in performance studies have trenchantly analyzed constructs of identity, gender, and race in the Long Eighteenth Century. In Rival Queens, for example, Felicity Nussbaum explores how actresses of the eighteenth century embodied and challenged femininity through their roles on and off the stage, roles that blended together in the mind of a public audience. But enlightening performance studies such as Nussbaum's do not often, however, account for age. Age cuts across gender, race, and class.

Yet there is no single volume devoted to popular fiction in its entirety. Through short but incisive and insightful cross-referenced entries, the 150,000 word companion will cover authors, topics, representative texts, and genres.

In 1886, Maxwell Gray (pseudonym for Mary Gleed Tuttiett) published The Silence of Dean Maitland. The plot of the scandalous novel concerns a young British clergyman, Cyril Maitland, who, after killing the father of a village woman he has seduced, allows a friend, Henry Everard, to be implicated in the crime. Following a trial, Henry is transported to Australia, where he serves out a twenty year prison sentence, while Cyril ascends the church hierarchy. The Silence of Dean Maitland was a bestseller. It was subsequently adapted for the stage and the screen: the play was a hit; the silent film of 1914 enjoyed considerable success in the U.K. and Australia; and the film of 1934 was something of a blockbuster.

Lucas Malet, Dissident Pilgrim: Critical Essays

Popular novelist, female aesthete, Victorian radical and proto-Modernist, Lucas Malet was a literary tour de force in her own day, yet her work has been largely neglected by contemporary readers and critics. A daughter of Charles Kingsley, Malet was part of a creative dynasty from which she drew inspiration but against which she rebelled both in her personal life and her published work. Scholarship by Talia Schaffer and Catherine Delyfer has reopened critical enquiry into the work of this fascinating author, and we are seeking contributions in order to expand this emerging field of study.
