Victorian Critical Interventions
Edited by Donald E. Hall


Included in this series are provocative, theory-based forays into some of the most heated discussions in Victorian studies today, with the goal of redefining what we both know and do in this field. Manuscripts should focus on brash or revisionary claims and, most importantly, should be brief (40,000 to 60,000 words). Preference will be given to those projects that engage with Victorian studies as a multi- and interdisciplinary field in order to attract a readership across literature, history, and cultural studies. Inquiries should be directed to Kristen Elias Rowley at The Ohio State University Press.
