Victorian Network – and a quick update

I’ve been Submissions Editor on Victorian Networkthe MLA-indexed journal of postgraduate and early career research for a few years now, and am delighted to say that I’ve been asked to take over as General Editor. There’s no way that I’d have said yes if the founding editor, the amazing Katharina Boehm, had not agreed to stay on in an advisory capacity until, well, I’m not emailing her every five minutes. I’m very excited about taking VN into a new phase, and grateful that the existing committee are also staying on.

In other news, I had an absolutely brilliant time speaking at the Pendley Shakespeare Festival on Sunday, and seeing their production of Hamlet. I hope to write more about both, but I’m off to help my friend choose flowers for what I’m already thinking of as The Great Anglo-French Food-Based Wedding Palooza Of 2015. nb it’s actually going to be based on love and commitment and a very pretty church in Warwickshire. But having heard the groom speak very enthusiastically and specifically about the way weddings are celebrated in his family home just outside Calais, my priorities are firmly in the bread-cheese-wine-meat zone. And flowers. Hurrah for flowers.

    • Thank you! Do point any of your new colleagues in C19 studies out way. We’re peer-reviewed and MLA indexed, so a great place to get your work seen – everything is open access too.

      • Sure, will do so! I actually had a gawk through the VN archives just now and saw that Muireann O’Cinneide was your guest editor for the first issue. Muireann taught me Victorian literature as an undergrad and is The Absolute Best.

        • That was before my time but yes! She seems great. We’re thinking about guest editors at the moment and it’s so interesting – reminds you how diverse the field really is.
