About the Journal
This journal's enterprise is temporally double, staging an encounter between the Victorian and neo-Victorian, between the two periods' aesthetic productions and material works, their discourses, ideologies, and socio-political contexts. It explores themes of modernity, alterity, and evolution through time and place in an ever more globalised and interconnected world. Two ages of literature and the arts reflect and converse with each other, the nineteenth century dreaming into the future, our own present moment reading and re-imagining the past, conjoined in an ever-changing interplay of light and shadows, visibility and obscurity, self and doubled other.
Neo-Victorian Studies is hosted by Swansea University, Wales, UK
