Welcome

Welcome to the Nineteenth Century Studies Association website, where we hope you will find information about the Association, its interests and outlets, as well as enticements to join in the many conversations we have on and beyond these pages.

Q&A: Jason Rudy

19 Cents

Jason Rudy is an associate professor of English at the University of Maryland, College Park. He is the current president of the Northeast Victorian Studies Association and author most recently of Imagined Homelands: British Poetry in the Colonies (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2017), a study of poetry written by nineteenth-century British emigrants in colonial spaces. His first book, Electric Meters (2009), looks at the ways Victorian poetry was inspired by and in conversation with developments in the electrical sciences: for example, the invention of the telegraph and the discovery of electromagnetic radiation.

Q&A: Mollie Barnes

19 Cents

Mollie Barnes is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of South Carolina-Beaufort. She works on nineteenth-century U.S. literature and transatlanticism. Her recent work—on Elizabeth Barrett Browning in Victorian Poetry, on Fanny Kemble in Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies, and on Edith Wharton in the new Critical Insights volume—emphasizes revisionist representations of history in literary texts. Her current book project, Unifying Ambivalence: Transatlantic Italy and the Anglo-American Historical Imagination, studies problem texts written by Anglo-American expatriates during the Risorgimento and the Unification of Italy. At USCB, she teaches composition, and surveys and seminars in American literature, including “Abolitionism in the Sea Islands,” a course devoted to literature about local and global social reform in Beaufort County, South Carolina, which is the inspiration for her next major project. She is also co-founder and co-sponsor, with Dr. Lauren Hoffer, of May River Review, USCB’s interdisciplinary journal for undergraduate research.

Have you ever had something happen to you professionally that you thought was bad but turned out to be for the best? Yes! One moment that turned out to be very helpful for me, in more and less direct ways over the last few years, began with my own total annoyance with myself. . . .

CFP: Patchwork, Cut-and-Paste, Reassembly (Special Issue of Nineteenth-Century Studies)

Special Issue of Nineteenth-Century Studies: Patchwork, Cut-and-Paste, Reassembly

This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century. One particularly exciting feature of Nineteenth-Century Studies is that the journal encourages authors to enhance their contributions with pertinent artwork.

Please submit manuscripts of 8,000-12,000 words, following NCS’s submission guidelines (http://english.selu.edu/ncs/submissions.php) to guest editor Casie LeGette at legette@uga.edu. Early expressions of interest and proposals of topics are also welcome. The initial deadline for submissions of full manuscripts is September 1, 2018, but review will begin June 1, 2018 and earlier submissions are encouraged.
