  • Introduction: Curating Feeling

    Mills, Victoria (2016)
    This introduction discusses the process of ‘curating feeling’ in response to the ‘Fallen Woman’ exhibition curated by Lynda Nead at the Foundling Museum in 2015. It uses this idea to reflect on both the historical specificity of Victorian emotion and the ways in which emotive objects have the potential to collapse time, nurturing a transhistorical sense of emotional community. The introduction presents the articles in this issue of 19, which read the relationship between nineteenth-century ar...

    Edward Carpenter’s Queer Ecology of the Everyday

    Parkins, Wendy (2018)
    This article considers the place of the everyday in Edward Carpenter’s life and writings through the concept of queer ecology, which draws on queer theory to challenge and expand the possibilities for pleasure, experience, and relationships that occur in the interactions between human and non-human agents. The simple mode of everyday life based on a more direct relationship with the natural world, as described and advocated by Carpenter, was one that foregrounded desire and other intensities ...

    The Awakening Conscience: Christian Sentiment, Salvation, and Spectatorship in Mid-Victorian Britain

    Burns, Karen Lisa (2016)
    From the 1830s into the mid-1850s, key Victorian art and texts depicted passionate Christian feeling through the trope of ‘awakening’.

Feeling had always been central to Christian belief but in the long nineteenth century faith was newly wedded to sensation. From the 1780s onwards, Christian reformers explored sensory psychologies and environmental settings as methods f...

    Diana or Christ?: Seeing and Feeling Doubt in Late-Victorian Visual Culture

    Nichols, Kate (2016)
    A young woman, a Christian from the third century ce, has a serious decision to make. She stands before a vast crowd at Ephesus, in what is now Turkey. Should she show her allegiance to Diana, the Roman goddess of the hunt, and live, or choose Christ, and be thrown to the lions? Victorian gallery-goers were entranced by this scene, an 1881 painting by the Anglo-Catholic Edwin Long, exhibited in that year at the Royal Academy, and again to widespread acclaim in the Manchester Jubilee Exhibitio...

    Seeing Animals on Egdon Heath: The Democratic Impulse of Thomas Hardy's The Return of the Native

    Feuerstein, Anna (2018)
    This article analyses the democratic impulse of animal representations in Thomas Hardy’s early novel The Return of the Native. I build on recent ecocritical scholarship that imagines political categories beyond the human, and historicize democracy in the context of the Victorian period and the Victorian novel. I suggest that Hardy recognizes the claims that animals have on human attention beyond their imbrication in a larger environment, and offers a more horizontal representation that includ...
