Special Issue: Victorian Disability
Fall 2009
Submission Date: 15 September 2008

The Victorian Review invites submissions for its forthcoming special issue
devoted to Victorian Disability. From the development of new sign systems
for the blind and deaf, to the growth of eugenics, from Dickens’ one-
legged man, Silas Wegg, to the disabled communities that populate the
fiction of Charlotte Yonge, the Victorians were creating and consolidating
ideas of ability, normalcy, difference, health, and illness. This special
issue seeks to explore the constructions of ability and disability that
circulated in Victorian Britain and abroad.

>From 'Corpus Christi' to 'The Mighty Line': Re-Evaluating the boundaries
between Medieval and Renaissance Drama

Description: The transition between the Medieval and Renaissance Stage has
long been seen as an evolution from the the Sacred to the Secular, but this
simplified approach tends to gloss over the complexity of that shift. This
panel will explore how the plays of the late 15th and early 16th centuries
in England negotiate the interplay between Medieval tropes and the
beginnings of the dramatic style that characterized the plays of the 1580s
and 1590s.

Possible Topics include, but are not limited to:
