Call for Submissons: Special Issue of NCS on "Patchwork, Cut-and-Paste, Reassembly"

This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century. One particularly exciting feature of Nineteenth-Century Studies is thatthe journal encourages authors to enhance their contributions with pertinent artwork.

Please submit manuscripts of 8,000-12,000 words, following NCS's submission guidelines to guest editor Casie LeGette at legette@uga.edu. Early expressions of interest and proposals of topics are also welcome. The deadline for submissions of full manuscripts is August 1, 2018, but review will begin May 1, 2018 and earlier submissions are encouraged.

The Albert Memorial

The images for this website are drawn from the Alebert Memorial, the monument to Albert, Prince Consort of Queen Victoria of England, situated in Kensington Gardens, London. As an opulent example of the Gothic Revival designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott—architect of so many imposing monuments to mid-Victorian culture, such as St. Pancras Railway Station and the Colonial Office in Whitehall—the Albert Memorial is a fitting emblem of the Nineteenth Century Studies Association. Although its representations risk identifying NCS and NCSA to strongly with Britain and with the middle of the century, the Memorial's design strikingly embodies the interdisciplinary mission of the journal and the organization.
