Welcome to the Journal of Victorian Culutre online. There are currently some very exciting developments underway which will be revealed shortly. Please do continue to visit the site. Don’t forget we are always looking for submissions for the site. These can include research focused pieces or lighter pieces about the Victorians!

In the meantime why not visit our journal page. Lots of great articles to explore including pieces on cocaine and the medical man; madmen in the railways; occultists; fashion in the novels of Margaret Oliphan and finally feminism in the artist home. In our latest issue we also published a digital forum on the future of academic journals with short pieces by Jim Mussell, Helen Rogers and myself. This forum is currently free access.
