About this Journal

Victoriographies – A Journal of Nineteenth-Century Writing, 1790-1914 seeks to invent afresh the long nineteenth century.

Returning to the text as text, Victoriographies explores, as if for the first time, those canonical texts and authors that seem familiar, and interrogates the understudied, those authors and publications which demand a response. The journal is concerned with writing of the long nineteenth century and writing about the nineteenth century.

Victoriographies is fully peer-reviewed and invites articles which address philosophical, epistemological and ideological concerns, as these are embedded in the surface and texture of the text itself. The emphasis is on Victorian writing, about literary texts, poetry, prose fiction and prose non-fiction in the period 1790-1914.
