Announcing a new electronic discussion list:

VICTORIA--The Listserv of Victorian Studies

VICTORIA is an electronic conference devoted to the
interdisciplinary field of Victorian Studies and dedicated to the
sharing of information and ideas about any and all aspects of
19th-century British culture and society. Covering a period even
longer than the reign of its namesake (say, 1790 to 1914), VICTORIA
equally welcomes the contributions of students of literature, art,
social history, gender studies, politics, publishing, intellectual
history, or what-have-you.

For the most passionate devotee of literary theory as well as the
most hardheaded empiricist, VICTORIA provides that beloved Victorian
thing, a "cheap luxury," in the shape of a free electronic forum for
the exchange of research ideas and queries, notices of recent books and
articles, conference listings, and job announcements, and for lively
discussion of any issues, large or small, that bear on the study of
19th-century Britain.

To subscribe to VICTORIA, simply send an e-mail message to
LISTSERV@IUBVM (the BITNET address) or
LISTSERV@IUBVM.UCS.INDIANA.EDU (the Internet address).
Leaving the subject heading blank, let the body of the message
consist of the line

SUB VICTORIA [your first name] [your last name]

That's all there is to it. To post a message to the list,
