'Victorian Popular Fictions is the journal of the Victorian Popular Fiction Association. The VPFA was established in 2009 in order to offer a regular forum for the dissemination and discussion of new research into nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century popular narrative. Mariaconcetta Costantini and Andrew King launched the VPFJ in Spring 2019 to publish the new research of the organisation on an Open Access online platform to a wider audience.
'Focussing on popular narrative in all its forms, VPFJ solicits articles which help us re-evaluate our view of Victorian culture as a whole and how that might be considered, including debates about canonicity and hybridity, digitisation, and the identification of pedagogical issues in the teaching of Victorian popular fictions.
'VPFJ takes it for granted that “Victorian” means the long nineteenth century and that “popular” means widely disseminated, but at the same time it welcomes challenges to those definitions. It invites the identification and analysis of tropes that coalesced into tales for a few years and subsequently dissolved to make new solutions. It also welcomes discussions of Neo-Victorian re-imaginings of nineteenth-century popular fiction.'
