Call for Submissions
The new editors of Cambridge UP’s quarterly journal Victorian Literature and Culture, Rachel Ablow and Daniel Hack, invite contributions to the journal. VLC seeks to publish innovative scholarship of broad interest to the field. They are especially interested in work that contributes or responds to the current moment of heightened methodological reflection, theoretical energy, and formal experimentation. They welcome submissions that aim to reimagine the field of Victorian studies in the twenty-first century, whether by interrogating the field’s scope, boundaries, methods, and shibboleths; leveraging new or neglected conceptual resources; exploring new archives; discovering or establishing new cross-field connections; or engaging anew with the field’s own history. They are open to experiments in genre and form and welcome queries about the suitability of particular submissions.
Please send submissions and queries to the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org. All manuscripts should be double-spaced and should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, with abbreviated footnote citations and a bibliography. (See sections 14.14 and following.) Essay manuscripts should be between 7,000 and 12,000 words. All essay submissions should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 200 words. For blind reading purposes, the author’s name, affiliation, and contact information should appear nowhere on the submission; they should be included only in the submission email. Submissions should be sent as attachments in Word.
