The journal is currently accepting manuscripts for the 3 general issues forthcoming in 2014 (Volume 41).

The Victorian villain of melodramatic stereotype cuts an instantly recognisable figure: cue the top hat and opera cape, the whiskers and moustache, the tremolo fiddle. Yet the narrowing down and simplifying of the Victorian villain is to a large extent a post-Victorian convention, strongly tied to the twentieth century's cultural assumptions of the Victorians as history's 'bad guys' (as Matthew Sweet, Christine L. Krueger and Rohan McWilliam and Kelly Boyd, among others, have noted).
The English Department, Faculty of Science, Humanities and Education, Technical University of Liberec in cooperation with the Department of Foreign Languages, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Brno University of Technology kindly invite you to the international conference
