6-9 juil. 2023

Congrès de la Research Society for Victorian Periodicals We seek paper proposals on any topic related to the study of the periodical and newspaper press during the long nineteenth century in Great Britain and the British Empire, as well as in transatlantic and European contexts. We are particularly interested in receiving paper proposals that engage with the theme of currents – currency, undercurrents, and crosscurrents – in the Victorian periodical press. Held in Normandy, where history reverberated through local and global communities, the RSVP Conference in Caen invites scholars to consider currents in the Victorian periodical press. The conference topic invokes not only the news – the representation of current affairs and topicality in the press – but also issues relating to progress and change in periodical titles, themes, forms, and roles over time. We are also interested in the notion of currency in business, industry, and information, as well as in the actual financial workings of periodicals and publishers. Undercurrents and crosscurrents allude to divergences and convergences as well as trends and influences, both in the Victorian periodical press and in twenty-first-century periodicals scholarship.
