Please note that the deadline for submissions has been extended to April
1, 2007.

The journal "Victorian Studies" seeks essays for a special issue on
"Victorian Emotions." Possible topics include -- but are not limited to
-- the role of the emotions in Victorian notions of psychology,
physiology, science, history, politics, or art. This special issue will
provide a forum for discussing Victorian concerns about the emotions
that remain at issue today: What are the political stakes involved in
the emotions? What is the relation between the emotions and reason?
What is the role of historical specificity in emotional experience? It
will also engage questions that arise for intellectual, literary, and
social historians of the emotions – as well as for those working in the
field of Victorian studies more generally: What are the limits to what
we can know about other historical moments? What tools are available to
us for reconstructing past understandings or experiences? To what
extent do these tools necessarily cross or complicate disciplinary

Deadline for submissions: April 1, 2007. Please direct all queries to
guest editor Rachel Ablow (rablow_at_buffalo.edu). Essays may not exceed
8,000 words. Please send 2 hard copies of each submission to Rachel
Ablow, Department of English, 306 Clemens Hall, University at Buffalo,
SUNY, Buffalo, NY 14260.
