CALL FOR PAPERS: VICTORIAN INTERFACES

Special issue of the Australasian Journal of Victorian Studies

Guest editors: Assoc Prof Mandy Treagus and Dr Madeleine Seys

We welcome articles from the broad field of Victorian Studies (including but not confined to) single and multi-disciplinary fields such as art and design history, cultural studies, history, literary studies, fashion, the law, performance studies and the history of science.

We encourage contributors to interpret the theme of Victorian Interfaces broadly. The following might provide some starting points:

  • Literary circulation: publishing, libraries, serialisation
  • The imperial project: colonial administration, race, strategies of domination and resistance
  • Networks and hierarchies: clubs and societies; business, religious and government systems
  • Popular culture: theatre, popular press, music hall, sport
  • Visual cultures: galleries, exhibitions, display, circulation
  • Materialities: new technologies, methods, substances
  • Genres: literary and cultural
  • Identities: classes, professions, sexualities, ethnicities
  • Spaces and places: metropoles, countryside, oceans, rivers
  • Museums and archives: models of display, collection and memorialisation
  • Taxonomies and classifications: nature, geology, medicine, peoples
  • Transport: shipping, railways, horses, walking
  • Resistance: political, national, Indigenous
  • Neo-Victorian in all its manifestations

All inquiries should be addressed to Mandy Treagus mandy.treagus@adelaide.edu.au or Madeleine Seys madeleine.seys@adelaide.edu.au

Submissions should be 5-7,000 words, marked Victorian Interfaces, referenced using MLA 7, and submitted via the Australasian Journal of Victorian Studies website by December 10, 2018 for publication in mid-2019.
