Mapping Victorian Sociability

What are the relationships among authors’ locations, their proximity to each other, and the development of their writing careers? How did sociability inform creativity during the Victorian period specifically? Orlando is sponsoring, with VSAWC (the Victorian Studies Association of Western Canada) and the University of Calgary, a new DH project, Mapping Victorian Literary Sociability, that will uncover and represent spatial networks that fostered literary production during the Victorian period. It will be created by participants at VSAWC’s next conference, held in May 2019 and convened by Karen Bourrier, Associate Professor of English at the U of Calgary.
