The editors of Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies welcome submissions for the
Spring 2006 issue of this peer-reviewed, online journal.

Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies is committed to publishing insightful and
innovative scholarship on gender studies and nineteenth-century British
literature, art and culture. The journal is a collaborative effort that
brings together advanced graduate students and scholars from a variety of
universities to create a unique voice in the field. We endorse a broad
definition of gender studies and welcome submissions that consider gender
and sexuality in conjunction with race, class, place and nationality.

The journal is published twice a year (April/ November) and accepts both
scholarly articles and book reviews year-round. We welcome articles of
4,000-8,000 words on gender studies and British literature, art and culture
during the long nineteenth century. Submissions should be in MLA format and
must include a brief biographical note which will be posted if accepted for
publication. Please send an electronic version of your submission in Word
