Victorian Popular Fiction Association
The Victorian Popular Fiction Association has been established to offer a regular forum for the dissemination and, hopefully, publication of the vast amount of research currently being done on Victorian popular fiction.
The planning of the Victorian Popular Novelists 1860-1900 conference in September 2009 confirmed to the Association's founders that research into this area of Victorian studies was both diverse and rewarding. We anticipate that we will hold a biennial conference but also anticipate that regular research seminars would be productive and informative, enabling academics working in this field to share their work and establish and maintain a vibrant network of collaborative scholarship.
It is the long term aim of the association that this website will provide information on conferences and publications of interest to members.
We also, in time, aim to produce a twice yearly peer reviewed journal of the latest research into Victorian popular fiction.
The Victorian Popular Novelists conference of September 2009 will see the launch of this venture and we welcome comments and ideas from all delegates.
