Neo-Victorian Studies Journal

Neo-Victorian Studies is currently still accepting submissions for the summer/autumn 2011 general issue.

Neo-Victorian Studies, an on-line, peer-reviewed journal, is dedicated to the exploration of the fascination with re-imagining the nineteenth century in the present. Inter-disciplinary and international in scope, the journal seeks to analyze our complicated investments in and creative engagements with the period.

Current and past issues can be found here:

We invite creative and scholarly submissions from established and early career researchers and creative artists on any topic related to the exploration of the nineteenth century from a twentieth/twenty-first century perspective. Contributions on the period's cultural legacies in non-British contexts, e.g. Asian, African, North and South American frameworks, are equally welcome.

Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
- theorising the neo-Victorian novel

- cultural traumas and practices of commemoration
- refracting or 'queering' narratives of nation and empire

- tracing patterns of environmental impact and destruction
