Summary

"Virtual Victorians offers new ways of thinking about issues of representation, technology, and media change in nineteenth-century literary culture, with specific deference to the emerging field of the digital humanities. The opening section, 'Navigating Networks,' deals with digital resources and asks how they are shaping the field of Victorian studies; the second, 'Virtual Imaginings,' considers Victorian technologies of virtual experience. As a whole, this volume demonstrates that understanding the aspirations and anxieties that attended Victorian virtuality will illuminate contemporary scholarly practice--and vice versa"--Provided by publisher.
