The Victorian Popular Fiction Association conference is recognized as an important event on the annual conference circuit and offers a friendly and invigorating opportunity for established academics and post graduate students to share their current research.  Our theme this year is ‘Bodies’ and Victorian Popular Culture.  This theme enables us to develop the interdisciplinary study of nineteenth-century popular culture and  explore a wide range of nineteenth century ‘bodies’ - social, political, financial, charitable, voluntary, campaigning, workplace and work organisations, trade, trade unions, industry, education, guilds, literary and scientific associations - as well as the more obvious human body.
