This book aims to intervene in current critical contexts for the study of nineteenth-century literature within the academy and beyond. Topics discussed include science and technology, poetry and philosophy, the Gothic, anatomical exhibitions, the global spread of liberalism, Anglo-American publishing, Punjabi popular culture and the neo-Victorian in literature, film and performance. By bringing together a broad range of intellectually challenging perspectives, the book offers an engaging critical overview of the field of nineteenth-century literary studies that will appeal both to scholars working within the field and students and teachers encountering this fascinating area of study for the first time.

'The chapters in this collection demonstrate that the popular is definitely worth further critical scrutiny, with a careful eye on what might be added to the map, what might be deliberately or inadvertently left out, and to what purposes. Although neo-Victorian criticism never quite makes it out of its separate territory in Interventions, the book offers further evidence that Victorianists and neo-Victorianists pursue shared routes of critical investigation.'
