Aim & Scope: The Journal of Victorian Culture ( JVC) promotes the best work on all aspects of nineteenth-century society, culture, and the material world including: literature, art, performance, politics, science, medicine, technology, lived experience, and ideas. It welcomes submissions which address a broad Victorian studies readership and explore new questions and approaches. Concerned with the long nineteenth century, its legacies, and echoes in the present day, the journal encourages articles which interrogate periodisation, historiography and critical traditions.

With an international Editorial Board, the journal has earned a reputation for its innovative features:

The Roundtable hosts conversations between scholars from different disciplinary perspectives and authors of major works in nineteenth-century studies.

The Perspective invites leading scholars to appraise the critical practices and traditions of Victorian studies. These essays offer pithy and provocative accounts of developments in the field.

JVC’s acclaimed Review section publishes essays of 2,000 words on major books covering the nineteenth century. Please send books for review to the Reviews Editor, Rohan McWilliam, Department of History, Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge, CB1 1PT and enquiries to

Digital Forum
The Digital Forum provides an indispensable guide to how the nineteenth century will change as we encounter it in digital form. It brings together interested users, expert proponents, and the deeply sceptical to present a range of perspectives upon the differences that digitisation might make to the discipline. Please send submissions or ideas for contributions to James Mussell, editor of the Digital Forum,

New Agenda
New Agenda brings together a group of scholars in active discussion over a set of essays which seek to open up new dialogues, explore innovative lines of enquiry, develop original conceptual and methodological approaches, or examine a topic from radically different perspectives.

The Victorians Beyond the Academy
This new feature explores the representation of Victorians in contemporary culture from museums, galleries and theme parks to the school curriculum, fiction and the ‘New Victoriana’, television and audio adaptations to the Hollywood and Bollywood blockbuster. It provides a forum for scholars to critically evaluate the impact of their work outside the academy and to assess alternative depictions of and myths about the Victorians. All research articles published in Journal of Victorian Culture have undergone rigorous peer-review, involving initial editor screening and review by at least two anonymous referees.
