Ellen Rosenman, Editor
Welcome to the Digital Annex of the Victorians Institute Journal, companion to the annual print issue. Below you will find a link to the latest issue, volume 40 (2012), as well as volume 39 (2011) and 38 (2010). Featured are the best papers from the 2012 Victorians Institute conference, including Ann Mazur's "Victorian Women, the Home Theatre, and the Cultural Potency of A Doll's House," winner of this year's Patrick Scott Award for the best graduate student paper.
Under the "Articles" heading, you can access the journal's "Text" section, which presents rare, inaccessible, or newly-edited archival materials. Our most recent feature is the long-lost play Mysteries of an American City," edited and introduced by Jamie Bridges, University of Birmingham. You can follow discussions of the articles on the right-hand side of the page and add your own comments using the "Discuss" button.
